Withum Week of Caring: 3 days before Thanksgiving we volunteer at charities in lieu of being in the office. In 2015, 43 orga- nizations were served - soup kitchens, food banks, children’s hospitals, animal shelters, etc. totaling 1,794 hours of volunteer time.

We are very active in giving back to the community. A few examples are partici- pating and fundraising for ALS, Philabun- dance and Camp Shine.

This winter in place of the money TPD would typically spend on sending a cus- tom holiday card to clients and contacts, TPD created a video campaign to raise awareness for Our Closet, a volunteer- driven organization that provides new or like-new clothing to vulnerable Philadel- phians and their families free of charge by operating “pop-up shops” throughout the city. For every view the holiday video re- ceived, we donated a new item of warm clothing (gloves, hats, and socks) to Our Closet. We donated 200 new items, along with boxes upon bags of items donated by staff and walk-ins. This donation drive was held in addition to our annual Toys for Tots donation by staff.

Giving back is extremely important to us as individuals and an organization. We have donated money and our time to organizations such as: Special Olympics, Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers & Big Sisters, Hebrew Academy of Special Children, John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center, Tomchei Shabbos of Bergen County NJ, and the SPCA of Westchester NY. We recently committed to sponsor a 5k run- ning race to fund a riding program at Pony Power Therapies in Mahwah, NJ for pedi- atric patients from the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital at Hackensack Uni- versity Medical Center.

The Premier Family has been donating re-usable items to not for profit organiza- tions since our inception, such as material for the Arts, NYC Cultural Affairs, El- ementary schools, and High schools, off Broadway Theater, local women and chil- dren shelters and NJ Division of Courts. Premier client base covers commercial and residential. Therefore, we come in contact with clients looking to donate ex- cess inventory and oven stock items, such as furniture, equipment, in various prod- ucts. Premier coordinates and sometimes transports the reusable items and our client receives the 501C tax write off.

Lee & Associates New Jersey held its second annual Suits for Success drive. It collected more than $50,000 worth of clothing and professional accessories for the organization, surpassing its donation value from the prior year.

Thank you for the overwhelming response to this competition. We appreciate your participation.
