Tis the season for giving back!
Our team took part in Mission St. Louis’ Affordable Christmas to help families in need shop for Christmas presents. To kick off the event, the Facilisgroup office held a toy drive and collected over 90 toys for the event. Facilisgroup employees (and family members) helped by setting up a department store and became personal shoppers for some of the amazing event guests. What a way to kick off the holiday season!
Making a difference in Denver!
During our September 2023 Partner Summit in Denver, we partnered with Wish For Wheels, a non -profit organization to build and donate brand-new bicycles and helmets to children in need in the Denver area. Our community of Partners, Suppliers, and Facilisgroup staff had a great time working together and built 30 bikes for a group of happy second graders – GO TEAM!
Summer of Caring
Facilis Cares partnered with the St. Louis Area Foodbank during the 2023 Summer of Caring. We were able to donate 20 hours packing boxes, collect 1,189 pounds of food, and provide 974 meals to local families in need. Even some of our youngest Facilisgroup team members got in on the volunteering fun!
Helping kids learn through outdoor adventure!
During our July 2023 Partner Summit in Boston, we partnered with Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center, a non –profit providing outdoor field trips to inner city schools in the Boston area. Their mission is to help kids learn, thrive, and grow through the challenge of adventure.
Our community of Partners, Suppliers, and Facilisgroup staff had a great time working together and prepared 200 gear packs for a local school filled with everything needed for their Thompson Island field trip adventure.
The Facilisgroup Community threw a birthday party!
At the 2023 Supplier Showcase in Dallas the Facilisgroup Community came together to make birthday party preparations for some amazing kids in need. We partnered with The Birthday Party Project a non-profit organization that brings joy to children experiencing homelessness through the magic of a birthday celebration. 300 cards were decorated and 300 goodie bags were prepared, and all donated to children living across the United States.
We hit our goal of donating 500 hours in 2022
Through our charitable giving program Facilis Cares, and partnership with our community and the United Way we were able put over 500 hours of good out into the world in 2022.
Home Sweet Home

Hand-Made Blankets in Orlando
At our Partner Summit and Supplier Showcase in Orlando, Florida, 90 people chipped in to make 50 blankets for local nonprofits: Harbor House, Vitas Healthcare, Seniors First and the Osceola Council on Aging! Volunteers donated a total of 100 hours towards the Facilis Cares 500 Hours of Good goal.
Progress towards goal: 100 hours
On May 12 we had a special Facilis Cares Day that spanned multiple countries. 40 volunteers between the U.S. and Canada cleaned up local parks just in time for summer. Water Tower Park in St. Louis and Shefford Sports Park in Ottawa looked amazing afterward. It was worth the sweat we built up!
