As every member of UNICO knows, no matter what chapter or area of the country you reside, "Every dollar generated by UNICO events supports its charitable endeavors".
UNICO KC was proud to gift one of our own and one who is related to a member. Every dollar counts, but it's what those dollars buy that make it a blessing.
We made a donation to Vic Mancuso's fundraiser. Vic is battling cancer and hopefully he gets the treatment he needs soon. I'm told he's in line for a bone marrow transplant. Keep Vic in your prayers.
I think most of us heard about the Kansas City fireman, Anthony Santi, who was killed while trying to break up an altercation this past summer. Anthony left behind a 14 year old daughter. Our hope was to do what we could to make her Christmas a little brighter. We received a Christmas wish from her and we went shopping. We gave her Apple Earbuds, an Apple watch, UGG boots, and UGG backpack, Kate Spade jewelry, and some other fun stuff. I know these gifts won't make her problems go away, but hopefully she realizes people do care.
As we approach the New Year, know that all the hard work we put in does make a difference. Blessings for everyone and all their families this holiday season.
