At JDP, we believe that every person has the ability to make a difference.
Whether it's a small act of kindness or a financial contribution to a good cause, every action makes a difference. A core part of the JDP ethos is giving back to the community and helping those in need. Below are just some of the organizations that we value and support.
Da Hunt for the Cure
Each year JDP participates in Da Hunt for the Cure in honor of Peter Manos Jr’s oldest son, Peter J. Manos, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2005 at the age of 12. Peter has been in remission since late 2005, with his chemotherapy treatment coming to an end in 2007.
JDP participates in this event both to build team spirit and to rally around a cause that hits very close to home.
Peter J. Manos’ uncle, Charlie Medici, has graciously hosted and organized the event for the past 9 years. Each year as the event grows bigger and bigger, “Uncle Chach” has done an outstanding job bringing family, friends, co-workers, and business associates all together to participate and contriubte to a great cause.
Da Hunt for the Cure: Ten Mile River Preserve-266 Berkshire Road Dover Plains, NY 12522 (8 AM - 3 PM)
