Community FoodBank of New Jersey

IMG 0675

Many families struggle to meet the basic necessities in life such as being able to afford food or making a decision between “do I not eat in order for me to have enough money for medication?”.

In July, the National Association for Industrial and Office Parks (NAIOP) extended an opportunity to Wilkin & Guttenplan to join forces together and volunteer at the Community FoodBank of New Jersey facility in Hillside, NJ. By collecting food donations and/or sorting and packing boxes of goods, we were able to aid the Community FoodBank in their efforts to feed the hungry.

As a result of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s combined efforts, they feed 900,000 people in 18 New Jersey counties. To give back whenever possible is truly a rewarding feeling and W&G is proud to help in their growing mission.

Partners, managers and staff join the movement each year by donating their upper lips to the cause for 30 days. Their moustache's (Mo's) sparked conversations (and generated laughs) in the name of raising awareness and funds for men's health issues, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.

Project First Class

Project First ClassThis year W&G participated in the launching of the Somerset County Commission on the Status of Women (SCCSW) "Project First Class" program. The "Project First Class" program is a chance to help kids start the new school year right. Many families are struggling to meet basic needs and school supplies may be out of reach for them financially. All types of school supplies are welcome but the children are most in need of backpacks (even gently used ones), as well as notebooks, three-ring binders, paper, highlighters, markers, pens, pencils and crayons. W&G employees and the firm gave and gave and gave to the tune of 7 crates of markers, pads, pens, pencils and over 20 backpacks. Thank you so much to our own Sharon Degenaars for bringing this to our attention and getting W&G involved!
