Finishing another charitable year in the spirit of giving.
Ruta and The Thalians Board of Directors presented a $250,000.00 donation to Ron Katz, founder of Operation Mend, and Dr. Thomas Strouse, Director of UCLA’s Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital. Operation Mend is devoted to helping brave military men and women heal the wounds of war; not only in body, but mind and spirit as well.
