Dermody Properties/DP Partners Foundation Donates Check to the Food Bank of South Jersey.

LOGAN, NJ – Reno, NV-based Dermody Properties Foundation recently donated a $10,000 check to the Food Bank of South Jersey to support their good works and help allay the cost of providing meals for needy families, children and seniors.

 
“We have been an active corporate citizen of Logan Township and Gloucester County since 2005 when we acquired the land for our LogistiCenterÒ at Logan industrial park.  We are very pleased to give back to a community that is an important component of our success,” said Stephen G. Bailey, RLA, Partner of the Eastern Region office in Harrisburg, PA, for DP Partners, a member of Dermody Properties.  LogistiCenter at Logan is located 15 miles south of Philadelphia, half a mile north of I-295’s Exit #10, 16 miles south of the Port of Philadelphia, and 12 miles south of Philadelphia International Airport.
 
“In 2008, 49,000,000 Americans – one in six – struggled with hunger, including nearly 17,000,000 children and 3,000,000 seniors.  That represents an increase of 36 percent over the 2007 number of 36,200,000 or one in eight persons,” said Bailey, referring to the results of a 2008 scientific survey, conducted by Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity.  Feeding America supplies food to more than 25,000,000 Americans each year through its 200 member food banks, of which the Food Bank of South Jersey is one, supporting 63,000 agencies that address hunger across the country.  “We hope our donation helps our neighbors in the short term.  We also hope our development business attracts jobs, an important component to a long-term solution,” he said.
 
 
Since 2005, five buildings, totaling nearly 1,500,000 SF, have been developed at LogistiCenter at Logan, a joint venture of DP Partners and Boston-based Great Point Investors LLC.  According to Bailey, when Logisticenter at Logan is built out, it will accommodate approximately 5,500,000 SF of new manufacturing, distribution, warehouse, industrial, research-and-development, office and flex space, generating more than 1,000 jobs for the labor pool encompassing south Jersey, southeastern Pennsylvania, and northern Delaware.
