Fashion Fair is proud to be a community partner. We strive to meet community challenges through a combination of employee volunteerism, financial support, in-kind donations and partnerships with non-profit organizations which have missions consistent with our vision and values.
Working to enrich the lives of all who pass through their doors, the Poverello House provides 3 meals a day, 365 days a year to men, women and families. In addition, they provide services such as clothing distribution, emergency food bags, a medical clinic, and temporary overnight shelter for men and women, and social services for individuals seeking to end their homelessness situation. The Fashion Fair Mall team regularly volunteers at the Poverello House in downtown Fresno serving lunch, prepping food for the next meal service, and any other service that might help the Organization.
Serving as Fresno County’s only dedicated provider of domestic violence shelter and support services, the Marjaree Mason Center established the Tree of Hope program to help ensure all families receive gifts of joy during the holiday season. Each year, Fashion Fair posts a Tree of Hope in the center adorned with ornaments listing specific items that could help support adult females and their children affected by domestic violence.
Each year, shoppers can stop by the Salvation Army Angel Tree, located near the Food Court, choose an ornament off of the tree, and shop for individuals in need just in time for Christmas. Ornaments represent individuals in the community who are in need this holiday season.
The mission of the Toys for Tots program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during the Holidays to distribute as gifts to less fortunate children in the community. Fashion Fair is proud to host an annual drop-off location for this great program that guarantees all toys will be delivered specifically to a child in our community.
Fashion Fair believes that every child deserves the opportunity to tell Santa what they want for Christmas, and for three special nights in December during the Santa, Can You Hear Me? event, Fashion Fair partners with the Deaf & Hard of Hearing Services Center of Fresno to bring in an interpreter to make sure that all deaf and hard of hearing children get the chance to talk to the Big Guy!
Each year, Fashion Fair, will contribute a preset amount of funds in the form of gift cards, merchandise and use of property to a diverse group of organizations. Hundreds of requests are anticipated each year.Donation recipients may include civil organizations' education programs; food banks; foundations; hospitals and healthcare organizations; youth programs; performing arts and museums and many more. Each request is reviewed carefully, however, not all requests can be granted.
