Over 50 First American colleagues participated in the Dimitri House Adopt a Family Thanksgiving program this year. With First American’s colleague donations, Dimitri House is able to provide local families the opportunity to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with home-cooked meals.
"It is the support and faith of friends like the staff at First American Equipment Finance who make our work possible," said Laurie Jones-Prizel, Executive Director of the Dimitri House in Rochester, NY.
Each week, Dimitri House provides groceries to dozens of families, serves hot meals in a drop-in lunch program, provides miscellaneous additional assistance for their clients, and in January of 2021 will launch their new permanent supportive housing program. During 2019, Dimitri House provided over 2,800 individuals with groceries, over 4,600 individuals with hot meals, and over 1,200 bed-nights in the shelter.
First American is grateful for Dimitri House and its support of the Rochester community.
