Who needs Santa when you can have Skanska instead? During the recent holiday season, employees from Skanska USA’s Parsippany, NJ, office made their annual visit to Matheny to drop off toys collected in the company’s toy drive. Sweden-based Skanska is one of the world’s leading construction groups. This is the fourth year that Skanska employees have visited Matheny during the holiday season.

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.
