On Noviembre 28, the Friends of FACCES event took place, bringing together friends, family, and supporters of the FACCES organization. The evening was filled with joy, laughter, and a shared mission to make a difference in the lives of children and families. The venue was buzzing with excitement as attendees enjoyed delicious food, refreshing drinks, and the company of their loved ones. One of the highlights of the evening was a game of bingo, which featured fun facts and data about FACCES’ accomplishments from the 2022 –2023 fiscal year. Goals for the upcoming year were also shared. During the event, attendees were also given the opportunity to tour the construction site of our new FACCES Kitchen and Theater. This upcoming addition to the organization’s facilities will provide a platform for promoting healthy eating habits, hosting cultural events, and offering educational resources to FACCES families.
