Charity:Water is trying to solve the world’s water crisis by bringing clean and safe drinking water to people living in developing countries. 785 million people live without clean water – that’s 1 in 10 people worldwide. Charity:Water works with local experts and community members to find the best sustainable water solution, whether it’s a well in Ethiopia like the one LeCraw sponsored, or a system for harvesting rainwater.

The Sonder Project’s mission is to strengthen communities, both domestically and internationally, through food security, clean water, housing, and education. They achieve this mission by adhering to three core values: sustainability, partnership, and equality.

They also assist in crisis hurricane recovery, which LeCraw Engineering was a part of for Hurricane Michael. For more information, visit thesonderproject.org.
Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful is a community-based network that focuses on finding long-term solutions to environmental and quality of life issues through individual action. They foster and cultivate a community of environmental stewards, where individuals and institutions take greater responsibility to improve our water, land, air, and lives.

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is dedicated to feeding children around the world who might otherwise perish from malnutrition and preventable causes related to undernutrition. FMSC works with food distribution partners that stay with communities for the long haul, empowering them to move from relief to development. LeCraw Engineering closes the office down one day per year so that all employees can participate in a local FSMC Mobile Food Pack, hand-packing meals specifically formulated for malnourished children. These meals are developed by food science and nutrition professionals to supplement nutritional needs and reduce problems with malnutrition, allowing children to grow, thrive, and develop to their full potential.
