Gibbons Honored With Award for Excellence in Public Service
October 27, 2010
The New Jersey Business & Industry Association (NJBIA) honored Gibbons P.C. with one of its Awards for Excellence in Public Service at the organization’s annual Awards for Excellence dinner on October 19, 2010.
The Public Service Award extended to Gibbons was based on “Gibbons Cares,” the collective designation of the firm’s charitable and pro bono platform, which includes annual donations of more than $1 million and extensive volunteer service, all in support of those communities in which the firm has offices. “Gibbons Cares” encourages employee feedback and project leadership, and it fosters the sense of teamwork necessary to achieve outstanding results.
A select group of companies were also recognized with awards for Environmental Quality, Business Expansion, Outstanding Employer, and Public Service. A full list of award winners is available at the New Jersey Business & Industry Association’s website.
“By branding our charitable and community outreach ‘Gibbons Cares,’ we acknowledge that these efforts have the full support of the great Gibbons law firm and the dedication of so many wonderful Gibbons employees,” says Patrick C. Dunican Jr., the firm’s Chairman and Managing Director. “The scope of the initiatives we undertake is only possible because they are firm-wide initiatives, with enthusiastic participation by the entire Gibbons family.”
Gibbons Cares was highlighted for its targeted outreach in five distinct areas in 2009 and 2010: developing the next generation of leaders; encouraging women in transition; supporting Newark and its institutions; alleviating crisis at the state’s food banks; and uplifting Gibbons personnel in need.
