10/04/2010 Category: Leasing and Development
Edison, New Jersey—October 4, 2010—Mack-Cali Realty Corporation today announced a partnership with Make Some Noise: Cure Kids Cancer Foundation. This organization, founded by 11-year old Malcolm Sutherland-Foggio of Florham Park, NJ, who himself is battling cancer, raises funds to support pediatric cancer research, a greatly underfunded cause. As part of its corporate-wide program, The Mack-Cali Advantage for Nonprofit Organizations, Mack-Cali subsidized 1,800 square feet of commercial office space for the foundation at 9 Campus Drive, Mack-Cali Business Campus in Parsippany, NJ.
This month Malcolm was awarded his wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Jersey. In keeping with the spirit of his selfless dedication to his cause, he wished for and received a makeover for his new office. The wish included office accessories, a flat screen TV, and an X Box—complementing his new office space. In addition, Mack-Cali has donated office furniture for the foundation’s offices. These efforts will help Malcolm’s foundation reach its goals, which include securing private funding to distribute to research facilities and promoting awareness through its fundraising activities.
Mitchell E. Hersh, Mack-Cali’s president and chief executive officer, commented, “Mack-Cali recognizes the important role nonprofits play in the communities in which we operate, as well as the unique challenges many face today, when sufficient philanthropic support is often difficult to obtain. We recognize that Malcolm is a unique and singularly dedicated individual seeking to make a big difference in an important area of concern, and we are pleased to be able to support his efforts.”
“Thanks in part to Mack-Cali and the wonderful folks there, we will have foundation offices that lend credibility to our cause and give Malcolm, who has been battling pediatric cancer since 2008, a place to help make a difference in this worldwide fight,” commented Julie Sutherland, chairman of Make Some Noise, and Malcolm’s mother.
