Farouk Systems CEO Donates to Shoes for Kids Organization

Last week, the Navigation Area Business Association (NABA) Shoes for Kids Organization held an honorary birthday luncheon for Farouk Systems CEO Basim Shami in Houston. At the luncheon, Basim donated $5,000 to the organization.


The NABA Shoes for Kids raises money to distribute new shoes to underprivileged children in the East End community during Christmas time. NABA founders Yolanda Black Navarro and Bill Flores created the organization more than 27 years ago in order to give back to a community in need.


“My daughter suggested I do something for children for my birthday instead of my usual dinner party,” says Basim. “This was truly a great way to give back to the community. I’m looking forward to bringing volunteers from Farouk Systems to help pass out new shoes to the children this December.”


Thanks to the donation from Basim and Farouk Systems, NABA Shoes for Kids will be able to purchase an additional 300 pairs of shoes for their event.
