Farouk Systems, Inc., a Houston-based haircare manufacturer, pledged to donate $20K to the Latino Learning Center, a nonprofit organization that helps the immigrant population integrate into the Greater Houston area.
The Latino Learning Center marked its 43rd anniversary with a Humanitarian Awards gala at Hotel Zaza’s Museum District on October 13th, 2022. The event, held during Hispanic Heritage Month, raised critical funds for the organization’s work to continue offering housing assistance to senior citizens, affordable classes for technical instruction, among other programs.
“It’s an honor for Farouk Systems, Inc. to be part of this anniversary celebration,” said Dr. Farouk Shami, Founder and Chairman of Farouk Systems, Inc., who was also invited as a keynote speaker. “Our company is proud to support the Latino Learning Center and the Hispanic community today and every day,” he added.
To recognize the contributions and importance of Hispanic women, Farouk Systems, Inc. joined the ranks of various companies celebrating extraordinary Latina CEOs for their entrepreneurial spirit, accomplishments, and service to the community.
“We greatly appreciate the support of our guests who help us honor our Latina award recipients today,” said Rodolfo Gonzalez, President and CEO of the Latino Learning Center. “It’s companies like Farouk Systems, Inc. that are leading the way in enacting positive change and making an impact in the Latino community,” he added.
In 2021, Dr. Farouk Shami was on the receiving end of the gala when he was bestowed with the COVID-19 Heroes Humanitarian Award from the nonprofit organization. He was honored for supplying Americans nationwide with CHI and BioSilk Natural Gardens Moisturizing Hand Sanitizers and other Coronavirus-fighting products. He then donated $17.5 million worth of CHI and BioSilk products to cities, medical professionals, homeless shelters, schools, and hospitals around the country.
“Farouk Systems, Inc. is and always will be dedicated to giving back to communities in need,” said Dr. Shami.
