In a conversation with Adam LeFebvre, the President of Specialty Print Communications (SPC), his deep compassion from which the organization operates was immediately apparent. SPC’s six-year relationship with Family Matters speaks for itself. As the marketing and communications business grew, so did its engagement with Family Matters—sponsoring the Annual Gala, supporting teens in summer internships, and encouraging alumni of our programs to apply for positions.
According to Adam, the company’s track record of giving back extends even further. Adam remembers his upbringing in a modest and hardworking family. As the roots of the family business took hold, he recalls how he was raised to be altruistic. His father led by example rather than by setting expectations. He watched his father consistently and quietly step up whenever and wherever support was needed. For the Lefebvres at that time, it often meant providing free print services, because that is what they had to offer. The family has taken this spirit with them from generation to generation. It is a legacy that Adam and his wife instill in their two children today.
There are two primary criteria that SPC look for when they extend their services and support to organizations: 1) a proven track record of success and 2) a direct impact. The business prefers to partner with people who demonstrate drive and motivation. Family Matters meets all of SPC’s criteria. Time and time again SPC has seen the youth come through our programming as achievers—graduating high school and going into the next phase of life, overcoming many obstacles along the way. From his perspective as an individual supporter and company sponsor, Adam surmises that there must be some magic for anyone who enters Family Matters’ doors and has the commitment to see the programs through. He believes that there are self-perpetuating opportunities and unlimited potentials to be had: the mentorships, the real-life exposure, the small victories. These are all components of the magic.
Given his, and SPC’s exponential belief in the youths’ futures, and the effectiveness of Family Matters’ programming, SPC encourages all youth who have graduated from Family Matters to explore working at SPC. They are guaranteed an interview. SPC seeks employees who have the type of commitment, drive, and motivation that Family Matters develops. In addition to this generosity through his company, Adam is eager for the day when his schedule will allow him to tutor-mentor a youth one-to-one. As he puts it, “The truth is, it’s all going to pay us all back because it’s going to make the world a better place.”
Thank you to Adam and all at SPC for supporting Family Matters – we are incredibly grateful for your partnership!
