During the Christmas season, SCE volunteers visited the Gino Merli Veterans’ Center in Scranton, PA to deliver gifts donated by SCE employees. In addition, the volunteers served lunches to residents and, as importantly, sat with them as they had lunch. SCE General Counsel, Gene Talerico, coordinated the visit. “They gave so much to their country, and now they are thrilled to have people sit with them and talk,” he said, “It is humbling to see these brave, strong people who are now incapacitated by injuries or disease, simply light up with happiness when we ask to sit with them for a few minutes. It’s an experience I won’t forget.”
Joining Talerico in the effort were Mariah Wheeler, Lauren Delguercio and Bruce Morgan. All echoed Talerico’s sentiment: this would not be soon forgotten.
