Fuccillo Donates $78,900 to Equinox for Domestic Violence Services!

Equinox received a (huge) check for $78,900 from the Fuccillo Automotive Group to support its services to domestic violence survivors and their children at a ceremony on November 10. During October, Billy Fuccillo pledged to donate $100 for every car sold at any of his dealerships to organizations providing domestic violence services.  Equinox was one of five agencies statewide to benefit from the Campaign.

“Mr. Fuccillo’s gift was an extraordinary act of generosity,” said Equinox CEO Dorothy Cucinelli.  “We were thrilled to be a recipient of this campaign last year, and are overjoyed that he chose to partner with us again.”

We are also deeply appreciative that during October Mr. Fuccillo used his frequent commercials to raise public awareness about domestic violence and where those in need can get help.”

IT’S HUGE...and so is our gratitude!

Equinox operates Albany County's only Domestic Violence Shelter for victims and their children. We also provide the following domestic violence services:  24-hour hotline; individual and group counseling; transitional housing and support services; advocacy and case management; and specialized services for victims of elder abuse.  Last year, Equinox provided domestic violence services to 1,730 people.
