We are grateful for every opportunity we have to serve our neighbors in this unique and special place.
Because of our unique role in shepherding families through the process of grief, we know that we are more than just a business; we are a key part of the local community, and that’s a role we take seriously. We are honored to serve our neighbors during seasons of mourning and loss, and to provide comfort through uncertain times.
Since this community has been so supportive of us over the years, we believe strongly in giving back, remaining visible, and doing our part to promote the community’s well-being. We encourage our employees to volunteer their time in ways that serve their neighbors, and we delight in working closely with local caregivers, veterans, first responders, clergy, hospices, and charities. In short, we empower our employees to make a positive difference in the local community.
Giving back is part of what we do, and community involvement is intrinsic to our business model.
The Team of Dalton Funeral Home decided to donate to one of our local charities for the holidays, The Mary Brennan INN. By reaching out, we found the items that they were in most desperate need of this season. Our donation of all new items included: 72 blankets and throws, 60 Hat/Glove/Scarf sets, 120 Pair of Men’s socks, 120 Pair of Ladies’ socks, 40 Personal Care Sets that included deodorant, tooth paste, tooth brush, shampoo etc., children’s games and coloring books. Hard Bound Santa Story Books that included music CD’s were donated to us to give to The INN by our local crematory, All Souls Crematory.
Victor LoGiudice, James Lewis and Kathleen Mendolia, brought the donations to THE INN on Thursday, December 12th and were treated to a tour of the facility led by, Cynthia Sucich
Chief Development Officer Corporate & Community Relations. We were floored by the reception we received and the grateful thanks that were extended to us by Cynthia and the entire staff. The facility is immaculately clean and very welcoming for the guests that they serve.
The “INN” as it is known, provides a broad variety of essential services to assist those challenged by hunger, homelessness and profound poverty. They partner with those in need in a dignified and respectful manner to help them achieve self-sufficiency.
On Sunday, October 27, 2019, the staff of Thomas F Dalton Funeral Homes Western and Eastern Divisions, along with John Fitzpatrick from Donohue Cecere Funeral Home, walked with The Mary Elise Millus Foundation for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Out of the Darkness Walk. Over 1,000 walkers braved a
Nor-easter storm at Jones Beach on Long Island. The walk raised over $300,000.
Thomas F Dalton Funeral Home was honored to walk with the Mary Elise Millus Foundation. It was our honor to serve the Millus Family.
Dalton Funeral Homes sponsored the Friends of Bryant Library fundraising event for the Children’s Library.
Our Community Shred Day allowed folks to bring Documents for shredding – free of charge! We held this event at our Williston Park location and had over 125 cars show up and gave away small goodie bags containing juice and muffins.
We were overwhelmed by the positive response and are planning on making this an annual event!
4 of our local schools (public and private/parochial) were looking for school supplies for kids who can’t afford to purchase all of the basics.
With the help of my staff and especially Kathy, my Admin Asst. (God bless Kathy) we assembled the needed basics for the kids, got them all packaged and ready to go this week to the schools, where they can be distributed, with our compliments and best wishes for a Great School Year!
