Melville, N.Y. - Global Facility Management & Construction has named “J.A.C.K.: Join A Cause for Kids” as the first recipient of its “Global Gives Back” initiative, an annual charitable program designed to give back to the community. Sean and Lauryn Blank presented the donation to the charity’s founder in memory of his son, Jack Perlungher during Global’s recent 10-year anniversary summer event.
J.A.C.K., Join A Cause for Kids, is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to raise money for children and their families who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of serious illness or personal tragedy. Jack Perlungher was diagnosed with a Wilm's tumor, a rare form of cancer, at the age of 4. The strength and courage that Jack displayed during his 13-month battle with the disease inspired many people to go out and do wonderful things to help others. In spite of everything that was against him, Jack always managed to show a zest for life, visible through his ever present “Million Dollar Smile.”
