There, he manages the commercial, industrial, retail, and multifamily residential projects. Outside of his work, Tony DiTucci is a longtime supporter of the United Way.

Earlier this year at the Education Innovation Awards event sponsored by EVERFI, the United Way and the NFL were recognized for their student education efforts. United Way and the NFL partner with one another to present the Character Playbook, an online learning tool that fosters skills and learning among middle school students, who are entering one of the most crucial developmental phases of their lives. Among other tools, the playbook gives them guidance on how to foster good relationships with others.

The United Way and NFL were among 20 other organizations that received recognition at the Education Innovation Awards event. Some of the criteria judges considered when evaluating the Character Playbook were its overall impact, student engagement, and quality of partnership with volunteers and other key stakeholders.
