Product Donations Support Local Charities
Extra plant material on the trade show floor and in the decorated areas of the Columbus Convention Center following OFA Short Course is traditionally given as charity to universities, hospitals and mental health facilities.

Habitat for Humanity and the Columbus Housing Partnership will use the plant material to provide landscaping to homeowners to showcase the power of plants to improve one's quality of life.
The Ronald McDonald House and local nursing homes, meanwhile, will have approximately 500 fresh floral arrangements delivered courtesy of the designers, volunteers and FTD Flower Exchange. The floral delivery is being coordinated by event volunteer Jody Brown-Spivey, owner of Expressions Floral Design Studio in Columbus.
