LIVINGSTON, NJ, November 19, 2014 – NCJW/Essex presented the Helen D. Schwartz Memorial Crystal Award to the accounting firm SaxBST at a special event on November 12, 2014 at Mayfair Farms in West Orange – NCJW & NJ – Perfect Together! This award honors an individual, agency or corporation who has made an impact in the community and who exemplifies the goals and purposes of the National Council of Jewish Women through outstanding vision and contribution to the community in education, social action and service.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the pros who crunch the numbers,” remarked Karen Cherins, past president of NCJW/Essex who presented the award. “But more importantly, their not-for-profit group understands the unique challenges facing non-for-profit organizations and provides them with the expertise necessary to help such organizations flourish and grow.”
SaxBST has supported the Section’s volunteer efforts and participated in the annual Back 2 School Store. In addition, they have made a commitment to volunteerism within their own organization, sponsoring an annual winter clothing drive for professional attire, a yearly charity run-walk event to benefit St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital, and their ‘Fist to Five’ seminars to benefit non-profits.
Josh Chananie, SaxBST partner in the not-for-profit group, accepted the award on behalf of SaxBST along with his colleagues Todd Polyniak and Marqus White.
