O’Donnell & Naccarato has been involved with the National Kidney Foundation (NKF), an organization dedicated to preventing kidney diseases, improving the health of individuals and families affected by these diseases, and making organ transplants available to more people. The NKF has been serving Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey since 2008. President Anthony Naccarato has been a member of its volunteer Board of Advisors since 2013 and the Board Chairman for the past 3 years. On March 11th, 2021, during the NKF 2021 Eve of Giving event, Tony was honored with the Arthur P. Pasquarella Leadership in Action Award, which the Foundation describes as “No ordinary award, given to no ordinary volunteer.”
Motivated to support the NKF due to his brother-in-law’s battle with chronic kidney disease, Tony has applied his vast enthusiasm, business resources, and love of golf to promote NKF events such as the Kidney Walk, Kidney Ball/Eve of Giving, and countless successful golf outings. These activities raised critical and significant funds to support ongoing medical research programs, patient and community services, professional and community education, and organ donation awareness.
Accepting the award, Tony expressed that what he enjoys most about being a part of this team is the “great people on the Board” and their “passion and commitment to the mission of NKF” He is also extremely proud of efforts expanding the Foundation into greater parts of New Jersey.
We are pleased to celebrate Tony’s inspiring commitment to the NKF.
