About Our Organization

Welcome to the Maria SS. Dell'Assunta Society's website. This benevolent society was originally founded in 1911 by Italian immigrants from Durazzano, Naples, Nola and Saviano. The founding members wanted to preserve both their Italian cultural heritage and Catholic religious traditions. For over a century the Dell'Assunta Society has proudly honored the Blessed Mother and contributed to many charitable causes in both the Roman Catholic Church and in our local community.  The Maria SS. Dell'Assunta Society is humbled and privileged to be able to celebrate our faith and culture today.

Supporting Many Worthy Causes

 The Society supports many worthy causes outside of the Westbury  community including St. Jude's Hospital, The Salvation Army, the American Red  Cross, the Inter-Faith Nutritional Network, Island Harvest, the Wounded Warrior  Project, Ronald McDonald House, Parkinsons Unity Walk, parents of Murdered  Children, the Italian-American Historical Society and the Missionary Fund Raisers to  name a few. 

Helping Locally and Across The Globe

image36

 Across the ocean, the Society assisted in the Italian Post-War relief and with disaster  aid for the catastrophic earthquake in Avellino and floods in Florence and Venice.    More recently, the Society established a scholarship for children with reading  difficulties to attend the Hofstra Reading Program and donated books to the St.  Brigid's School Library. 

Life Changing Work

image37

 One of our Members, Anthony D'Urso, is very active in the Bridges to Community  organization which helps build houses and schools in Nicaragua.  Tony has made  numerous trips to Nicaragua where he volunteers his time to build homes for  deserving families that need shelter from floods and volcanos. The Dell'Assunta  Society has proudly supported Tony and has made several contributions to this  amazing, and life-changing organization. 

Proud To Help

 The Dell'Assunta Society is very proud of all of the charitable causes we have been  able to support over our last century and we are looking forward to being able to  support our community and the Church in our next century as well.
