Van Note-Harvey Associates continues longstanding partnership with Eden Autism

Van Note-Harvey Associates has been a part of the Princeton-Plainsboro community for over 125 years. As a small business, they believe giving back to the community is an important part of their mission.

“It is important to us to give back to the communities that have supported us for so many years, especially in unsettled times such as these,” said Sabrina Petrella, Marketing Manager. “The firm is proud to support neighbors like Eden with whom we share a common interest in the well-being of our local communities.”

Van Note-Harvey Associates, an engineering and environmental consulting and land surveying firm, has returned to sponsor the 2020 Eden Autism 5K & 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk. Not only have they sponsored the race since 2008, but many of their employees and their families and friends participate in the race each year.

“We remain a sponsor because we are solid believers in Eden’s mission and their capacity to ensure children and adults with autism continue to learn and thrive, developing the foundation for productive and fulfilling lives,” said Sabrina.

Van Note-Harvey Associates has supported Eden beyond sponsoring the 5K. They also helped open the Eden School building in the Princeton Forrestal Village location, providing land surveying, site/civil engineering design, permitting assistance, and construction phase engineering services.

“The Van Note-Harvey Associates team has been a fixture in this event,” said Eden Autism Chief Development Officer Melinda McAleer. “The company’s support of Eden goes back more than a decade and is testimony to its commitment to the community.”

The firm traces its origins back to 1894, when Charles Silas Sincerbeaux opened the practice in Princeton and began working for Princeton University. The University remains a client today, along with numerous other academic, institutional, and corporate clients, architects, and other businesses throughout the state.

Along with Eden, Van Note-Harvey Associates regularly supports local organizations including the Historical Society of Princeton, the Princeton Family YMCA, and the Morris Hall St. Lawrence Foundation as a way to show appreciation for all of the neighbors who make the Princeton area such a vibrant community.
