Kenvue World Headquarters and Central 9 Logistics Park were this year’s winners of United Way of Northern New Jersey’s 2024 Impact Award, which honors commercial real estate projects with the greatest positive impact.  


The winners were announced May 10 during the 25th annual United Way Legacy Event. Hosted by the United Way Commercial Real Estate Network, the fundraiser was attended by nearly 400 leading commercial real estate industry professionals. 

 

In a nod to the event’s quarter century of growth and community impact, the United Way Commercial Real Estate Network was this year’s recipient of the United Way Spirit of Philanthropy Award. The award honors an individual or group from the commercial real estate industry whose actions reflect the values of United Way. For 25 years, committee members have given of their time and resources to help grow the event into United Way’s largest fundraiser and a must-attend event for industry leaders.  

 

The event, which raised $335,000 was focused on improving life for ALICE. The acronym, which stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, represents the essential workers who struggle to afford the basics. Since 2000, the commercial real estate industry has helped to raise more than $4.5 million for United Way. 

 

“We are grateful for this industry’s longstanding commitment to United Way — especially in the face of such challenging times. For 25 years, this industry has stood by us and helped to put ALICE individuals and families on a path to financial stability,” said United Way Senior Vice President for Resource Development George Xuereb. “In addition, we congratulate this year’s winners for their positive impact within our communities.”
