Sometimes it takes a village…
An organization that claims to care about the community, these folks talk the talk, and walk the walk, as the saying goes.
Volunteers from Skanska donated and built shelves to hold more than 900 movies in an effort to boost SCCA House’s video library. And ever since summer 2011, Skanska employees have volunteered to cook for patients staying at the SCCA House.
“It has been a privilege to partner with SCCA to provide a warm, home-cooked meal to patients and caregivers at the end of their long days,” says Chris Toher, Skanska’s executive vice president and general manager.
John and Lynn, patients at SCCA were happy to be on the receiving end of a good meal: “We had just arrived from out of town and the cupboard was bare! Many thanks for the home-cooked and delicious meal.”
Other patients staying at SCCA House said, “It was a great break for my caregiver. It is wonderful to be in a facility that has such a great neighbor.”
Receiving cancer treatment is tiring and being away from home is hard, especially when you’re sick. Providing home-cooked meals for our patients is just a great thing. From SCCA, and our patients and caregivers at SCCA House, “Thank You, Skanska!” Your dedication to your community is wonderful.
