What We Do
Like a family, we provide Care, Comfort and Support.
Fairway Cares was established to provide support to individuals and families facing a critical illness or dealing with the loss of a loved one. When you need to reach out, we are here for you. Currently, our programs include sending care packages and providing financial assistance.
Programs
Our core programs are care packages and financial assistance. Packages are specifically tailored for adults or children diagnosed with a critical illness, have sustained a physical trauma, or for those who have lost a loved one. We also send care packages to caregivers.
Who We Serve
Currently Fairway Cares is designed to meet the caring requests of Fairway employees. When someone in our family, our community, our office, or within our business circles is experiencing a loss or hardship, we are here to show our support.
Year-To-Date Giving
So far in 2017, Fairway Cares has shipped 281 care packages. Many of these packages have gone to Fairway employees, while over 200 have been sent to family, friends, caretakers and associates of employees. We have shipped packages to 173 cities in 36 states.
To care, we must do caring things. Fairway Cares.

Request
The process starts with a request from a Fairway employee. The employee will provide general contact information and indicate whether a care package or financial assistance is being requested. The employee will also briefly describe the situation and provide relevant background information.

If the request is for a care package, the Fairway Cares team will assemble the items and send out to the name and address on the application (home, hospital, etc.). If financial assistance is being requested, the Fairway Team will evaluate each request and determine the amount that will be granted.
