Modesto is the city of "Water Wealth Contentment Health" and home to the world’s largest winery. Needless to say, water and water quality are integral to the community and the folks who live here. We serve the community that we live with to ensure that the legacy and pride of Modesto continues to maintain its integrity. Who are we? We’re community members and leaders, who enjoy a night out in our historic downtown just as much as we enjoy being patrons of the arts at the Gallo Center.
We're committed to Modesto.
FACS was founded on the principles of giving back and supporting our surrounding communities. In line with those principles, our founder, Dave Kahane, has a well-defined program for supporting employees who are passionate about causes that they believe in – Dave’s Direct Giving (or “D3”) – which provides ten $2,500 awards to various non-profits annually. This way of thinking is pervasive throughout the company, as our staff is given two paid days off per year to support causes that are dear to their hearts.
We work to protect public health and to create safe spaces for living, work, and play. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
