Volunteers Gather at Historic Mt. Kemble Home to Give Back –
February 14, 2017, Morristown, NJ – Today, volunteers from Newmark Associates are gathering to build and create items for the residents at the Mt. Kemble Home. Guided by Caring Capital, the team will roll up their sleeves to construct and mount bookcases in the Home’s new library and craft a TV console system for the new Community Room. Volunteers from Newmark will also create wall hangings to brighten the entire residence. How fitting for a women-led commercial real estate firm to boost a women’s residency!
“Volunteering is a fundamental part of our company,” says Susanne Newmark, Founder and President, Newmark Associates. “Giving back to communities and taking care of one another are core values of our entire team. What a powerful experience the act of volunteering can be for all involved!”
Last month marked the completion of a $1.5M renovation of The Mt. Kemble Home in Morristown. The project included everything from completely renovating the residential rooms and all common areas to replacing the roof and converting a small kitchenette into a commercial grade community kitchen.
“We couldn’t do what we do without volunteers like Newmark, who make things so much easier for the women that live here,” said Tom Clark, Homeless Solutions, Director of Housing Development. “We are grateful for their willingness to take time out of their busy lives to make someone else’s day a little brighter.”
Charitable giving and volunteering is an essential part of business today. According to Giving USA‘s 2016 report, 2015 was America’s most generous year ever.
“Caring Capital was founded on the premise that team-building and corporate social responsibility can and should be one and the same, said Susie Schub, Founder and President,
Caring Capital. “Belonging to a team makes people feel they are part of something bigger than themselves. Individuals feel a sense of corporate camaraderie when they work together to achieve a specific goal.”
