Calcagni Kanefsky Benefits Nonprofits During Pandemic
Calcagni Kanefsky in Newark launched “We Will Prevail” to aid local nonprofits struggling to serve beneficiaries during the COVID-19 crisis, pledging 5% of its April revenue to support such organizations, according to a release from the firm, which noted that the firm has donated $10,000 to the New Jersey Reentry Corp. That organization, under the leadership of former New Jersey Gov. James McGreevy, provides access to food, shelter and health care for residents in need. The firm also has pledged support to: Daytop New Jersey, serving those suffering from addiction and substance abuse disorder; Front Line Appreciation Group (FLAG), a newly organized group helping feed front-line health-care workers during the pandemic while working to keep local restaurants in business; and Royal Family Productions, a socially conscious theater committed to making theater accessible for youth and adolescents from under-served communities. Firm senior partner Thomas Calcagni said in a statement that the firm is made up of former prosecutors and knows “the importance of service−we brought that with us from our careers as government officials, and it forms the fabric of our law firm.” Fellow senior partner Eric Kanefsky added in the statement: “By launching this campaign, we’re aiming to motivate other people and companies to action, to support these and other worthy, neighborhood non-profits that may be struggling during this unprecedented time.” The firm is also encouraging others to make their own pledge of support to struggling non-profits in their communities via ck-litigation.com.
