Here comes Skanska Claus!

For the second consecutive year, employees from Skanska USA brought an early Christmas to Matheny, dropping off boxes of toys for the students and patients. This year, though, they were accompanied by Santa Claus, aka David Formichella, technical administrator in the New York City office.

Students from two classrooms gathered in the children’s dining room to visit with Santa and to receive their gifts. Sweden-based Skanska, with offices in Parsippany, N.J., and NYC, is one of the world’s leading construction groups.
