Ruscilli Employees Help Assemble Easter Baskets for St. Vincent Family Center

Easter is just around the corner, and our employees have been busy making sure the kids at St.Vincent Family Center are all visited by the Easter Bunny! Working together, we were able to assemble 18 Easter Baskets for the resident children at the Center and delivered them yesterday. Of course, the baskets wouldn’t be complete without a Ruscilli hard hat squeeze ball!

Ruscilli is a proud partner with the Center and we are happy to help further their mission to help “make good kids better.” St. Vincent Family Center provides mental health prevention, intervention, and treatment services to children and families in Columbus and throughout the state of Ohio. The Center serves over 5,000 families a year and more than 9 out of 10 of their kids acquire the skills they need to live their best life.

Canine Companions for Independence DogFest Walk ‘n Roll

One of our employees is such an avid supporter of our friends at Canine Companions for Independence that she raised over $1,000 for their DogFest Walk ‘n Roll last Saturday. She met many Canine Companions (including one still in training!) and even had the closest estimate of the quantity of dog treats in a jar and won the whole jar for her personal dogs!

Founded in 1975, Canine Companions for Independence® is a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships. For more information on their organization and the DogFest Walk ‘n Roll event, visit their website at

Support Our Troops!

Ruscilli’s Community Involvement Committee recently completed a drive to collect ‘most needed items’ to be sent to our troops serving overseas!

We collected (1560) Slim Jim Sticks, (630) Packs of Fruit Snacks, (614) Packs of Crackers, (227) Razors, (117) Packs of Tuna w/crackers, (48) Deodorants, (29) Packs of peanuts, and (23) Hand Sanitizers!

We partnered with an organization called Operation Buckeye. Operation Buckeye was formed with the sole purpose of sending boxes to our troops as a way to thank them for their efforts and to bring a touch of home to them. The boxes sent contain food and snacks, personal hygiene items, reading materials, and good wishes of love and support.

Operation Buckeye provides caring civilians the opportunity to show their appreciation and respect to the men and women of our military stationed in hostile and remote regions of the world. To learn more, you can visit:



Trevor’s Wish to be a Construction Worker!

Ruscilli was so blessed to be a part of making a wish come true for a little boy named Trevor. Four-year-old Trevor has been battling medullablastoma for the last two years. His days have been filled with doctor’s appointments and trips to the hospital. However, Trevor doesn’t let this get in the way of doing what he loves most: playing ‘construction’ with his little brother Riley. Pretending to work on a construction site – just like his dad does – is a game that never gets old.

Trevor along with his parents, Nick and Sarah and little brother Riley made a visit to our Friendship Village of Dublin jobsite where the family had lunch with the FVD and Make-A-Wish team. Fully equipped and dressed for the part, Trevor and Riley were ‘put to work’ “driving” excavation equipment and laying brick and mortar to build a wall.

Thank you to Make-A-Wish for allowing Ruscilli to be a part of this very memorable day. A special thank you to Friendship Village of Dublin for allowing this event on their property, Mr. Excavator for lending excavating equipment along with an operator to assist during this event, RVM Construction for assisting with the brick laying, Jendco Safety for donating youth size apparel, Exit 121 for taking care of the logos, and of course to Ruscilli’s Project Team for assisting with this Wish and making this day possible.

Trevor and his family touched all of our hearts and we will never forget it!
