This is a very proud moment for me. When I started Flower City Flavor Company, my two main objectives was to be an ethical company and also a charitable company. I am very gracious to have success thus far in this business venture which allows me to make my first donation. I’ve chosen the Alzheimer’s Association Rochester & Finger Lakes Region as my first monthly charity. I’ve experienced first-hand what a horrible disease this is as my grandmother Carmela Russo was diagnosed with it and ultimately passed away on May 1, 2015. There hasn’t been a day that has gone by where I haven’t thought about her. She was big on family and loved her parents, siblings, daughter Mary Ann (my mother), grandkids, cousins and especially my grandpa Pasquale. No one should ever have to spend the last years of their life not knowing who they are and who the ones who love them are. This by all means is not a huge donation but I have to start somewhere. My goal with the growth of this company is to continue these donations each month but I would like to keep adding 0’s as I grow. Your support in my business helps me accomplish this. Thank you to all who have supported thus far…and this is just the beginning! Thank you Grandma, for everything.
