Seasons Greetings

As we head into the holiday season, I'd like to take a moment to thank FYFB's many supporters -- our volunteers and our donors -- for their hard work and dedication this year. We are grateful for your ongoing commitment to building a strong community of support at FYFB.

Every week I see the positive impact we make in the lives of individuals and families through the work we do, and I want you to know that you are helping to make a difference.

On behalf of the entire FYFB family, let me wish you a safe, happy and healthy holiday season and a peaceful new year.

Ravi Sreedharan
FYFB Board Chair
