A small group of Ruscilli Associates had the amazing opportunity to volunteer their time this past Saturday to help make a local Wish come true. Six year old Alex’s wish was for a therapy/play room where he can build strength while having fun in his own home. Alex is currently battling Dravet Syndrome, a rare and catastrophic form of epilepsy.

Ruscilli Associates picked up the toys to complete Alex’s therapy/play room from the home of a Make-A-Wish board member and transported them to Alex’s home in Upper Arlington where we set up the room for Alex’s use. The family was so thankful for our efforts.

A big Thank You to J. Yankle and Builders Resource for partnering with Ruscilli on this Wish. Thanks to them the room was ready for our group to setup the toys for Alex.  J. Yankle installed the wall pads and Builder’s Resource assisted with the padded flooring.

We are all so thankful that Ruscilli allows it’s employees to get involved with the community and volunteer our time for such amazing causes. The sheer joy on Alex’s face made it so worth it!

Thank you to Brandi and Brenna Gentzel, Michelle Cutie, Lisa and Jay Vonk, and Debbie Justi for volunteering your time.
