LiDestri’s #1 Philanthropic Partner: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp

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.
