Eleven year old Rosario Cascio was honored with a County proclamation by Legislator Susan A. Berland in recognition of his extraordinary generosity and charitable efforts. Rosario founded “Rosario’s Giving Tree,” an organization that holds holiday gift drives to provide presents to children who are in hospitals. He hopes to expand his operation to be year-round. Thus far, he has collected and distributed over 500 gifts including Lego toy sets, board games, puzzles, crayons, Barbie dolls and Teddy Bears.
“Rosario is a role model to his peers and, in fact, to us all” said Suffolk County Legislator Susan A. Berland. “It was an immense pleasure to get to know Rosario and his family, who are raising such incredible children. I encourage everyone to find ‘Rosario’s Giving Tree’ on Facebook and to get involved by donating toys to his wonderful organization.”
