Dozens of Volunteers Collect 800 Pounds of Food, Monetary Donations
TOTOWA/HILLSIDE, N.J., July 28, 2014 – Integrated Business Systems (IBS) of Totowa was among dozens of NAIOP New Jerseymembers and friends that supported the commercial real estate trade organization’s 2014 Community Action Project. Businesses collected food and contributions, and in mid-July they delivered the donations to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey in Hillside.
Approximately 90 volunteers, including IBS team members Dawn Bernstel, Marianne Ignar, Vicky Osborn and Hope Curcio, spent the day sorting items and packing boxes for delivery. In sum, participants collected nearly 800 pounds of food products and financial contributions totaling more than $1,900.
According to its website, Community FoodBank of New Jersey distributes 40 million pounds of food a year to more than 1,000 non-profit programs, as well as more than 400 programs served by its partner distribution organizations. Their combined efforts feed 900,000 hungry people in 18 New Jersey counties.
“The idea of being hungry with no means of feeding yourself or your family is terrible, but it is an unfortunate reality for many people in our community,” said Dawn Bernstel, IBS’ vice president of operations. “We are grateful to NAIOP New Jersey for providing a venue for us to come together as a company to do something to help, and we are proud of our employees for their enthusiasm in supporting a great cause.”
IBS develops and supports sophisticated property management and real estate accounting software. The IBS system – which has evolved over 35 years – today is used by more than 75 prominent New York/New Jersey area commercial and residential owners and operators. The company also provides computer network services to clients in a range of industries.
