DiPrete Pays it Forward this Holiday Season

By December 19, 2018 Engineering News

Supporting the surrounding communities is a priority for DiPrete Engineering. This holiday season, employees donated to the Amos House, the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, and Save A Lab Rescue.

In November, the team collected non-perishable food which was donated to the food bank and then distributed to pantries throughout the state.

This month, the DiPrete team collected new, unwrapped gifts for all ages to give to the Amos House’s Community Shopping Day, a day for its clients to “shop” for gifts based on their individual and family needs. Donated items are set up as a “store”, so that clients have an opportunity to personally select gifts for their families.

The team also donated to Save A Lab Rescue, an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and re-homing of displaced Labrador Retrievers and Labrador Retriever mixes. Nicole Reilly, Vice President at DiPrete Engineering, has been involved with the organization since 2012 when she adopted two dogs of her own, Snickers, a chocolate lab, and Sadie, a black lab. She recently adopted her third dog, Wally, a yellow lab. Save A Lab is always looking for people to adopt as well as foster these loving dogs.
