Manhattan Employees Unite to Help Brighten Holidays for Special Needs Families
Ark Latt, Vice President of Turner International, LLC, arrived with bundles of toys, new clothes, and supplies of food for patients & families of St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children.
Along with Turner colleagues, Ark and his team hand-delivered the holiday surprises just in time for the holiday season to help ensure a brighter and healthier holiday season for St. Mary’s kids and their families who are facing the difficult challenges of caring for a child with special needs, and keeping afloat with basic necessities.
Turner held a clothing, food and toy drive at their office headquartered in Manhattan where employees banded together and donated boxes and boxes filled with desperately needed items for patient families, some of whom are without food, clothes, water, or even shelter during these faltering times.
Turner International, one of the largest construction and development management companies in the world with projects across the country including, Asia, Europe, Latin American & the Caribbean, and the Middle East, has played a significant role in helping to raise funds and awareness to support the comprehensive network of programs and services offered to children and families with special needs.
President & CEO of Turner, Nick Billotti, recently kicked off the “Building for Children” program, a mentoring and occupational therapy program that brings teams of Turner employees together with St. Mary’s kids for a hour of building, drawing, developing, and other activities that promote therapeutic healing.
Ark, Nick, and the rest of the Turner family have truly embraced St. Mary’s kids into their hearts and are committed to improving the quality of life for children and families battling complex medical and life-limiting conditions.
