The celebration got particularly exciting when Santa Claus himself showed up to deliver gifts to the residents at SDC.
The highlight of the evening was when SDC’s director, Terry O’Neill, presented a family who receives MSC services from SDC with a $500 donation, which was raised by the staff of SDC. Janet Rivera took in her sister’s son after her sister passed away a few years ago. Ms. Rivera was raising her son when she took in her sister’s son, who has special needs, as well as medical needs. She honored the promise she made to her sister before she passed, that she would take care of him.
Ms. Rivera’s compassion and generous nature was noticed by her MSC, Kebbi Almonte, who nominated this family amongst several other families in need to receive the SDC donation. Our staff voted to help Ms. Rivera make this Christmas a special one for her loved ones.
SDC would like to give a special thanks to Sal’s Pizzeria, located at 1160 Yonkers Ave. Bronx, NY 10704, for donating a delicious dinner for our staff and residents at the Holiday Party. SDC appreciates Sal’s Pizzeria’s generous donation.
