A Commitment to Caring

    We are passionate about giving back to the community. We participate in several charitable events and community service activities throughout the year, including volunteering at a local food pantry. As a trained volunteer EMT for more than 15 years, Peter's service extended beyond Westchester County to Ground Zero in 2001.
