We take pride in being able to give back to our community

           An important responsibility of a successful business is to give back to the community where their families, employees and clients live. Located in Mercer Country, we allocate a meaning amount of time and resources toward improving the lives of fellow citizens from all walks of life.

He donated 1,000 hours as a volunteer Hot Line worker for Contact of Mercer County. At age 67, he began running half marathons for charity. To date, his fundraising projects have raised $1,050,000 for three non-profits.

Along with Co-Chairman RJ Lewis, Bill established the “Run For Club Kids” on behalf of the Boys & Girls Club of Mercer County (Trenton) to raise funds to assist intercity students prepare themselves for higher education. In the past four years The College Access Program has provided $1,031,000 in scholarships, technology and remedial training to worthy students. John Molinelli and Jeff Strasburg have run The Princeton Half Marathon alongside Bill and have been a big part of the project.
