What Mascaro is Doing
Holy Family Institute
Since its inception in 1988, Mascaro has been involved in supporting this organization that helps, heals, and supports children and families in Pennsylvania. Holy Family has served the community for over 100 years by providing alternative learning environments and career training, support and counseling to families in need, and help with addiction, alcoholism and other debilitating problems.

Another organization that Mascaro has continually supported is the National Aviary. Located in our backyard, it is the largest indoor aviary and the only naturally designed aviary in the United States. It is home to over 200 species and through its collection and programs, the Aviary creates extraordinary learning experiences for children and families, students, teachers, bird lovers, eco-tourists, community organizations and seniors. Further information can be found at www.aviary.org.
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
When this disease affected one of the children of a Mascaro employee, Mascaro rallied its support to help find a cure for this devastating illness. The firm sponsors an annual walk in which many employees participate, and has held a fund raising event in November, Get Together with a Cause, with great success.
