Pierre Filisetti owner of Abacus Landscaping, took the opportunity to donate $1,000 to the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund.
Filisetti said that during winter, when his landscaping business slows somewhat, it allows him time to reflect upon everything for which he is thankful. Filisetti said donating to the Christmas Cheer Fund is his way of helping the community in a tangible way.
Earlier this fall, Filisetti told mayoral candidate Reid Hamer-Jackson that if he was elected, Filisetti would donate $1,000 to a charity of Hamer-Jackson’s choice. After winning the election, Hamer-Jackson and Filisetti both agreed the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund was the right choice.
