Ron M., 76, Medford, NY

Ron Matonti, a resident of Medford, New York, had his wish for restaurant gift cards granted, thanks to our Long Island chapter.  Matonti, 76, is an Army veteran who has congenital heart failure and is homebound. Because of this, he relies mostly on canned foods that are delivered to him from a local food pantry. His wish was to receive restaurant and food delivery gift cards so that he can order fresh food instead of just eating canned foods.  Matonti was nominated by Melanie Corinne, the project coordinator for the Joseph Dwyer Peer Support Project in Suffolk County. Long Island Chapter Director James Ciervo and Corinne delivered the gift card basket to Matonti on Friday, December 17th at his Medford home. This wish was made possible thanks to the generosity of many donors.
