IFB Solutions is a manufacturing plant that produces everything from steno notebooks to t-shirts. What sets them apart is who they employ. People are at the center of everything IFB Solutions does in Arkansas. Over 75% of the workforce at IFB solutions is blind or has some other visual impairment. Nationally, the unemployment rate for the blind is over 60%. IFB Solutions is doing their part to combat that statistic by giving the visually impaired an employment opportunity. Working with the blind, providing them with independence, and having people at the heart of their mission is why IFB Solutions is this month’s Rainwater, Holt & Sexton Spirit of Arkansas Award winner.
Rainwater, Holt & Sexton is partnered with KATV Channel 7 to present the “Spirit of Arkansas Award.” The award is given to local charities doing exceptional work in the community. To be considered for the Spirit of Arkansas Award, a charity can apply here.
