SHELTON, Conn. -- Ansonia families in need received gifts for the holidays from the DiMatteo Group in Shelton and their staff gifts for three local families in need through BHcare in Ansonia.
“As a company, we foster a spirit of giving back to the community, especially around this time of year when so many families require a helping hand,” said John DiMatteo, President of the family owned company.
It specializes in insurance, employee benefits, income tax and financial services.
“We treat others as an extension of our family and are involved in many philanthropic service projects.”
“Eleven years ago we established the DiMatteo Family Charitable Foundation and an annual golf tournament,” noted DiMatteo.
“The foundation was established as a tribute to our late father who was battling cancer at the time. Since then, we have contributed over $330,000 for various well-known local and national charities that fund research, education and finding a cure for diseases.”
“This gesture of goodwill will bring joy to three local families and make a tremendous difference in their lives," said Tammy Burrell, Chairman of the Holiday Drive and Secretary of the BHcare Board of Directors.
