Organizations LiDestri Supports
LiDestri has two principal charitable arenas for its corporate giving: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp and and a variety of arts organizations in the Greater Rochester Area, home to our headquarters.
Hole In the Wall Gang
For more than 25 years, LiDestri has been raising funds to support The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a charity founded by Paul Newman which provides medically supported camp experiences for children and their families dealing with serious illnesses. In collaboration with another Rochester-based company, American Packaging Corporation, LiDestri regularly raises in excess of $1 million per year for the charity, which makes the camps available for free to families throughout the Northeast. The largest annual fundraiser, the Big Apple Bash, is co-chaired by LiDestri's Stefani LiDestri and American Packaging’s Peter Schottland. Learn more about The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.
Rochester Arts Charities
LiDestri is active in helping to conserve and promote the arts in Rochester for art’s own sake. Whether it's a trip to The Little Theater, which features independent and foreign films and is home for visual arts or enjoying a world class musical line up at The Xerox International Jazz Festival. LiDestri supports the arts in the community and as a way to maintain the vibrant quality of life for our employees to enjoy.
