The Center for Youth has recognized First American for its significant contributions to our local community with the Cuminale Youth Advocate Award. Nominated and selected by staff at the Center, the award named after Chuck Cuminale, highlights youth advocates that go the extra mile.
During the award reception, the Center shared, “First American has a deep-rooted shared vision for what matters. Their support of the Arnett House (as well as other programs) shows that a large, national company can make a meaningful impact at the local level. This company has been by our side through this shared vision and understanding of our work and the needs of our community, especially those youth facing homelessness, trafficking, and abandonment.”
First American’s support of the Center has grown significantly over the last five years. Recent initiatives include a pride parade fundraiser, fitness contest fundraiser, a school supply drive, winter item drive, shelter baskets, professional attire drive and a career day. In addition, groups of First American colleagues volunteer regularly at the Center throughout the year. Two First American colleagues serve with The Center for Youth’s board leadership, including Heather Wohaska (Board, Programming Committee) and Aryana Shaheen (Associate Board).
