Greene Staff Support Local Veteran
January 03, 2019 12:00 AM
A Greene County veteran and her family received what she called a "Christmas Miracle" from staff at SCI Greene.
Field Human Resource Director Tammy Koratich spoke with her after learning of her recent struggles through the Greene County Veteran's Affair's Office. Her two eldest children, ages 10 and 13, understood that there would not be a Christmas for them as their mother explained the money was needed to pay the bills and the mortgage. Although they were disappointed, they understood.
Koratich reached out to the family and collected a "wish list" from the children. The employees at Greene quickly went into action to ensure the gifts were collected, wrapped and delivered to the family in time for Christmas. Items such as a dishwasher, two laptop computers, a cellular telephone, clothing and toys, including a gift basket for the family's dog, were among some of the items that were donated. The family also received $1,355 in cash and $350 in gift cards as well as a visit from Santa. We are extremely blessed to have received the overwhelming support from our staff for this family during the holiday season.
