Community Involvement

FPI West Cancer Run

Assisting in our community is something that comes naturally to us here at FPI. We are extremely focused on giving back and we take social responsibility seriously. You will always find FPI employees volunteering their time and skills, participating in athletic events in support of charity, and reaching out to those in need. FPI employees love to sweat for a cause! Doing the right thing means supporting the community we serve. From enhancing student’s learning in local high schools to being the largest contributor to a local food bank, FPI funding and volunteering has a significant impact on the local community.

Believing it’s important to invest in our communities, you will see us continually looking for ways to make a difference where we live, work and play. Below are just a few examples of how we get involved.

Food Drive

Food PantryAs part of FPI’s commitment to serve our local community, one of our annual initiatives includes hosting a food drive to support those less fortunate and help fight hunger. Each summer, FPI employees coordinate company-based food and fundraising activities to help meet the increased demand for food (and personal care items), helping out when food drives are not as widespread. FPI is proud to share that in 2015 employees donated an impressive $11,510 to The Open Pantry in Springfield.

Blood Drive

Blood DriveFPI realizes that the demand for blood supply is constant and does its best to contribute to this life-saving need by hosting an annual on-site blood drive providing employees a convenient way to give back to the community, helping to save lives.

Toys for Tots

Toys for TotsFPI sadly recognizes that there are children in our local community who won’t know the simple joy of opening a gift during the holiday season. Each year, FPI employees enthusiastically come together in conjunction with the Marine Corps to gather and donate dozens of new toys for children in need.

Western New England University

WNE FPI works with Western New England University bringing ‘real world’ workplace technologies to campus. FPI sponsors the FPI Excellence in Computer Science Scholarship, a merit-based scholarship meant to help motivate bright and ambitious students to continue to excel in the field of computer science. Also, in 2015, FPI donated funds to help equip the new WNE Cyber Security lab in support of the new Network Security major WNE hopes to offer students in the near future.FPI frequently sends employees to WNE for guest lectures to WNE’s Computer Science and IT Department classes and participates in WNE’s CEO Luncheon in which our former CEO, Tom Moran, was one of the first CEO presenters. FPI has also donated funds which enabled the start-up of the ‘WNE Women in Technology Group’. FPI is proud to work so closely with WNE enhancing the learning experience for WNE students and preparing our future workforce.

FPI Gives

At FPI you’ll find a culture where people are committed to each other and you will experience a family-sense of caring. FPI recognizes that we all may experience troubling times in our lives. When difficult times arise within the FPI Family—whether it be an illness, surgery, family crisis, death in the family, etc.—FPI employees come together and do whatever we can to offer support during that time of need from providing transportation and cooking meals to taking up a collection. We are there to help our fellow employees in whatever way we can.”
