First 5 Fresno County has named five winners of its 2022 Child-Friendly Business Awards.
The winners are Bitwise Industries, Debbas Gourmet Chocolate/Made in Nature, Fresno Metro Black Chamber of Commerce, Legacy Construction, and Success Together, Inc.
First 5 Fresno County received a record number of nominations this year. The businesses selected for the award were noteworthy for honoring their commitment to employees and their families, offering benefits such as flexible schedules, time off for children’s events, maternity programs that go beyond state requirements, resources to work from home as needed, and childcare facilities for employees and customers.
Having child-friendly businesses is considered so important to the community’s well-being that the Fresno County Board of Supervisors declared June 2022 “Child-Friendly Business Appreciation Month.”
First 5 Fresno County is one of the county’s leading advocates for children from birth to age 5 and their families, including advocating for preventative health care, early learning, and family support. The agency believes that when families thrive, children receive a strong foundation that allows them to reach their full potential.
