Corporate Citizenship: The Business of Giving

“The Corporate Citizenship Awards celebrate companies, foundations and individuals who recognize that building a better Long Island to live, work and play starts with community service.  By embracing the idea that being a good corporate citizen can help an entire region prosper, this year’s honorees have set the bar high.  They have donated both time and money to a cause greater than themselves; some have even made helping others their life’s work.  Each of them understand the value of being part of something greater than themselves.” – Joe Giametta, Publisher of Long Island Business News

On Thursday night the 2018 Scholarship recipients were announced at East Hampton High School’s award ceremony.  The year’s winners are Rudolph DeSanti, of East Hampton, and Maya Schultz, of Amagansett.

Mr. DeSanti has participated in many community service projects for several school organizations, as well as on his own.  The project he is most proud of, was helping the EHMS PTA re-do the interior courtyard at the East Hampton Middle School.  He had just graduated from the middle school the prior year, and this was his way of giving back and ensuring younger students had the possibility to have as many great memories and positive experiences there as he did.  He will be attending Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island.

The scholarship for each recipient includes a $1,000.00 check to help with college expenses.  Best of luck and congratulations!
