For the month of December 2022, FACCES would like to highlight Medwish International for their dedication of time to help support the community! Ali Schwarz, President and Sharon Avtalion, Vice President lead the Ohio State University chapter. This recently established club focuses on raising money for essential medical devices that can help those in need. Ali and Sharon took the time to reach out to FACCES in search of volunteer opportunities that were sincerely focused on the wellbeing of the community. We are so inspired by these young people for taking the initiative to help others.
Chef Reese Flowers has done some amazing work in the community! From collaborating with FACCES for both the Fresh Market Festival and Food Therapy, he has helped in providing families with healthy food options. Now Chef Flowers has had the opportunity of becoming the Executive Chef at “Degrees”, in Mitchell Hall on the campus of Columbus State Community College. He will be using the established culinary curriculum to create amazing dishes for customers to enjoy as he helps to improve their experiences!
Since 1951, the Strader family has been planting seeds of happiness in the Central Ohio area. Although Strader’s Garden Center began in one small garden store on King Avenue, it has grown “like a happy little weed” throughout the state and now has six locations. Vicki is known as the “smile maker” in the FACCES Community. We call her this because the flowers, plants, vegetables, and herbs she so selflessly donates to our families always create a contagious group of smiling people on our campus. She serves the FACCES community faithfully during our Fresh Market Festival and as a contributor to other FACCES events throughout the year. Strader’s has a historic ability to cultivate excellence across our teams by hiring people from all walks of life, ensuring the highest levels of knowledge and customer engagement.
