The Panichi family’s passion for business is matched by their personal spirit of giving. As such, Royal Carting has made it a mission to give back to the community. Initiatives that help children overcome challenges and achieve their best potential are a particular area of focus.

Royal Carting supports local hospitals and colleges, as well as hundreds of local non-profit organizations, including the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, DARE, Abilities First, Downs Syndrome of the Hudson Valley, Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie, and DC ARC.

​Most recently, Emil and his family helped to build the Panichi Pool for Maplebrook School of Amenia, NY — a specialized boarding school that serves adolescents and young adults who learn differently.
