CRE Development Association’s 1 Million Meals for NJ Campaign Seeks Donations to Reach $333,333 Goal

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., April 4, 2019 – NAIOP New Jersey was among the leading companies and organizations honored by the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey (CIANJ) and COMMERCE Magazine as “Champions of Good Works” during the seventh annual tribute to the kindness and generosity of the state’s business community. The commercial real estate development association was recognized for its longstanding advocacy and community action efforts to combat hunger in New Jersey. The award was accepted by NAIOP NJ Senior Director of Policy & Communications, Barbara Morford, who manages the association’s community action projects.

Michael McGuinness, NAIOP NJ CEO, said, “We are proud to accept this honor on behalf of our 800-plus members, who volunteer their time and energy to collect food and cash donations to support the nearly one million residents of our state who suffer from hunger. From supporting comprehensive anti-hunger legislation to community action projects, NAIOP NJ is committed to continuing and expanding our efforts to address the issue of food insecurity.”

For the past nine years, NAIOP NJ’s anti-hunger initiatives have included dedicating its annual Community Action Project to partnering with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey (CFBNJ). The state’s largest anti-hunger and anti-poverty organization, CFBNJ partners with over 1,000 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters across the state to ensure that nutritious food is available to families in need year-round.

To celebrate its 10th year supporting CFBNJ, NAIOP NJ has launched a 1 Million Meals for NJ fundraising campaign with the goal of raising $333,333 to provide 1 million meals for those in need across the Garden State. To date, the campaign has raised over $72,000 online via a dedicated page on the CFBNJ website,
