(Toronto, ON, February 26, 2018) – Foresters Financial™, an international financial services provider, teamed up with FFP Insurance Services to package and donate 200 hygiene kits for women to The Shade Tree shelter in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Shade Tree provides emergency shelter and services to homeless and abused women and children in crisis. It is the largest shelter of its kind in the state of Nevada, providing 364 beds per night, hot meals and support to help those in need get back on their feet.

“Foresters is happy to support an organization like The Shade Tree, which helps so many vulnerable people,” says Matthew Berman, Head of U.S. Distribution for North American Life and Annuities at Foresters Financial. “For over 140 years Foresters has been moved to action to help enrich the lives of our members and their communities.”

“FFP and Foresters have had a relationship for a decade, and we share a common goal in giving back,” said Ira Gottshall, President and Chief Executive Officer of FFP Insurance Services. “

“With 15 new families turning to the Shade Tree for shelter and assistance daily, we give out hundreds of hygiene kits each month and the kits assembled and donated by Foresters and FFP Insurance Services are truly a gift that is needed and will be appreciated by each woman and child we are able to give one to,” says Stacey Lockhart, Executive Director at The Shade Tree. “We can’t thank everyone enough who helped to put them together and make this donation possible.”
