Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's Disease
In 2002 First Montgomery Group and many others mourned the loss of a long-term team member who lost a battle to A.L.S. As a sign of respect and on-going support of his family for his dedication over the years, First Montgomery Group held the 1st Annual Auction at the Annual Holiday Party. Dedicated team members solicited gifts and donations from valued contractors and vendors. Both a silent auction and a live auction were held to benefit Andrew Braun the surviving son of Chris Braun. The live auction, conducted by Dan Gordon of AVCO Supply was an amazing success. All in all, the auctions generated a great start to the education fund in excess of $10,000. First Montgomery Plans on making the auction an annual event, so that when the time comes for Andrew's furthering education, he will be in a position to do as he chooses.
Contributions or donations for the auction or the trust are welcomed and would be greatly appreciated. Contact First Montgomery Group for more details: email@example.com
Sincere Thanks Go Out to All of Those Who Helped, Donated and Participated in The Auction.
Industry Association Involvement
First Montgomery is committed to making a difference and giving back to the communities in which they work. This is done in a myriad of ways; including donations of time, monetary, food, gifts and toys. First Montgomery feels it is through these efforts that they are distinguished from other companies. Participation in a local Habitat for Humanity Project in conjunction with the Southern New Jersey IREM® Chapter brought together team members and industry contacts to provide a new home to a family in Camden, NJ. Annual food drives at each property are conducted in support of their IREM® chapter. In addition, toys drives for The New Jersey Apartment Association's Annual Children's' Holiday Party are held with wide support.
First Montgomery Team Members are sure to be found at the NJAA Children's Parties, which are held annually at The New Jersey State Aquarium in Camden as well as the Camden River Sharks Stadium. In both instances, children from The Ronald McDonald House, local hospitals and charitable groups are invited to spend an enjoyable day with an enthusiastic group of volunteers.
As First Montgomery Group is a locally-owned private company, their roots are in the Southern New Jersey Area. In an effort to give back to these areas, First Montgomery Group supports area non-profit housing organizations. First Montgomery has long supported The St. Joseph's Carpenter Society in Camden, NJ as well as The James A. Pindar Affordable Housing Corp. in Trenton, NJ. Both housing groups are dedicated to providing affordable housing to those less fortunate.
