1. PRESS RELEASE: KDI Partners with Nemours, Provides $3000 in Gift Cards to Local Family in Need

For the 5th consecutive year, KDI Office Technology has partnered with Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children to help a local family over the holidays. All proceeds raised from KDI’s Annual Holiday Party raffle baskets and half of the 50/50 sales were donated to a family in need. This year Nemours matched KDI with the Anderson family. Emily is a 12-year-old girl who is medically complex with an amazing, spunky attitude and spirit. She was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Cytopathy, which causes difficulties for her each day. She has fought the symptoms of her disease since birth and requires 12 medications twice a day to maintain her current state. She depends on tube feedings of molecular formula and glucose therapy into her intestines as well as the mito cocktail. There sadly is no cure for Mitochondrial disease. KDI also collected holiday cards for Emily from employees at their holiday party which were presented to her mother to help brighten her day while she was recovering from surgery.while she was recovering from surgery.
