The DHCC does excellent work in making our community more inclusive and more accessible to our deaf community members, and they deserve our full support.
Swarthmore, PA (PRWEB) October 08, 2015
Mattus & DiGiacomo Agency, a family owned insurance firm with offices serving Swarthmore, Milmont Park, and communities near southwestern Philadelphia, has wrapped up a charity drive launched to benefit the Deaf-Hearing Communication Centre, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting communication access and cultural advocacy for the deaf community.
For over a decade, the Deaf-Hearing Communications Centre has educated the local community about inclusive communication and advocated on behalf of the deaf community. In addition, the DHCC offers a broad range of communication access services to the community, including sign language and CART (real time captioning), and offers local law enforcement and medical professionals an on-call Emergency Sign Language Interpreting Service.
“The DHCC does excellent work in making our community more inclusive and more accessible to our deaf community members, and they deserve our full support,” says Guy DiGiacomo, owner and manager of Mattus & DiGiacomo Agency. “It’s been a great privilege to work with them on this charity drive, and we look forward to working with them again soon.”
DiGiacomo and his team count their charity drive successful after raising more funds than they originally anticipated, and, more importantly, reaching far more community members than they initially estimated. “People in the area were very responsive to the needs of the deaf community, and we enjoyed a tremendous amount of support from nearby families and business owners,” reports DiGiacomo.
As part of an ongoing community involvement program, the Mattus & DiGiacomo Agency will be working with at least one new charity every 60 days over the months ahead, and the firm already has a new charity picked out for their newest project. “We’re going to be pitching in and helping out one of the teachers at Walter M Senkow Elementary School in Glenolden,” continues DiGiacomo, “we understand they need help furnishing classrooms, and our team is eager to lend a hand.”
