Most Influential People in Business 2016:
Sunny Schaefer, Executive Director, Operation Food Search

Sunny Schaefer, Executive Director, Operation Food SearchSunny Schaefer’s creative thinking took Operation Food Search’s mission to new levels. “I didn’t know 20 years ago (when I joined Operation Food Search) hunger was such a pressing problem in our community,” said Schaefer, executive director of the nonprofit organization. “I’m most proud of our nutrition education program. It allows us to reach deeper within the community to help break the cycle of poverty.”

The capital campaign fundraising effort was launched in St. Louis in partnership with Holmes, Radford & Avalon, Inc. in January to fund renovation of a 61,000-square-foot facility that Operation Food Search bought for $2.3 million earlier this year. The Crawford Taylor Foundation, one of the largest charitable foundations in St. Louis, donated $1 million to the campaign earlier this summer. The J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation also gave $350,000 as a matching challenge gift.

The bigger facility will help Operation Food Search expand its programs and services, Schaefer said. “It will help us move the needle in ending hunger.”

The campaign raised money for the $70 million renovation and modernization of the Central Library downtown, St. Louis. “The donors to the capital campaign have helped insure that Carnegie’s vision will be realized throughout the 21st century in ways he, and we, could never have imagined,” said Tom Schlafly, St. Louis Public Library Director and Campaign Co-Chair.

Shriners Opens New St. Louis Hospital

Shriners New Hospital

Shriners Hospitals for Children, St. Louis has opened their new facility in the Central West End! Specializing in orthopedic care, the 12-bed hospital includes surgery, diagnostic, imaging, physical/occupational therapy, and prosthetic services. Much of the third floor is dedicated to research focused on regenerative medicine.

Since most patients travel long distances to receive care at Shriners, the hospital includes family quarters for parents’ overnight stays if they cannot afford a hotel stay. The child-friendly interiors are brightly colored with interactive elements where children can play and connect with each other. This $50 million, 90,000-square-foot hospital will replace the Shriners hospital in Frontenac and is the Shriners’ third in the St. Louis area. Congratulations on a successful fundraising effort!
