We recognize that our community contributes to many of our successes, and we do not let that go unreciprocated.
Supporting local, community-based organizations where our employees live, work and volunteer is central to our mission as a corporation. In addition to making philanthropic contributions, we also regularly participate in community events in and around Morris County. We are proud that our employees value the importance of being involved – both independently and as members of the CMK Select team – serving as board members, event planners and volunteers for a variety of organizations.

Virtual Food Drive
Due to COVID-19, New Jersey’s food insecurity rate is projected to rise by 56%, more than the increases nationally and in our neighboring states. To help feed local families, our team is committed to is partnering with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey (CFBNJ), the largest anti-hunger and anti-poverty organization in New Jersey. CFBNJ has provided New Jersey residents with food, help and hope for more than 45 years.
If you are interested in donating, please visit our Virtual Food Drive. All donations collected will be used to provide meals to families and communities across the state. Just $10 helps provide 30 nutritious meals to our neighbors in need. We hope you join us in the fight against hunger!

The organization raises millions of dollars annually by hosting 5k runs/walks and various other events nationwide. All of the money raised benefits charities supporting the FDNY and other first responders who continue to risk their lives for our country. CMK Select has sponsored this event for several years, and regularly pays the entrance fees for employees and their families who choose to participate. In addition, through this foundation, CMK has also helped build a home for an amputee who was ambushed in Iraq.
