The Secret Samaritan Charity Program continues into the new year with its second recipient, Deloris Quintana. Deloris was nominated by her daughter Victoria Quintana, who submitted a letter stating that in early November, Deloris lost her beloved husband. This not only caused heartbreak in their family, but also put them in a financial crunch.
Victoria and Deloris met with the Secret Samaritan Charity representatives where they also explained that Deloris recently underwent knee surgery. Her recovery was going well, until she slipped and fell on the stairs. She will now need a second surgery on the same knee.
Deloris got emotional when the Secret Samaritan Charity representatives gave her a $200 Walmart gift card as well as a $2,600 check addressed to her mortgage company to get her caught up on mortgage payments.
