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.

2. KDI Cares Foundation Thanks You

As 2019 comes to a close, we invite you to celebrate the achievements KDI Cares Foundation has accomplished this past year. It is because of your generous support and dedication that we can fight against breast cancer, so no one fights alone. In 2019, the Foundation donated $80,000.00 to the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Together, we were also able to give the gift of HOPE by providing much-needed funding for innovative breast cancer research, free lodging near treatment for patients and caregivers, new free wigs through Wig Banks and Cancer Centers, and so much more.
