Case Study: Lyles Family - A Tradition of Giving

Three generations of family giving William and Elizabeth Lyles set the standard for philanthropic giving, which their children and grandchildren now follow. Mrs. Lyles was quoted from a Lyles Co. publication, "Some years ago Rotary International published a book entitled 'Service Is My Business'. My husband gave this book away to people within the company and to others also.He believed that being in business, or working should not be just a means to benefit ourselves. Our success should also be used to benefit our communities and others."

Neighborhood Market Program

Volunteers help supervise the children as clients visit the Community Food Bank’s Neighborhood Market program. This food distribution program delivers fresh produce and other healthy staples to destitute areas of Fresno, Madera and Kings Counties. Since its launch in March 2008, the program has distributed more than 1 million pounds of food in more than 30 locations. Thank you to the Fresno Regional Foundation for awarding a $10,000 human services grant to support this important work!
