On February 1 and 2, 2018, NJ SHARES proudly teamed up with the New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center for Cool Down for Warmth, presented by PSE&G. We are excited to report that we raised more than $220,000 from the NJ SHARES’ Cool Down for Warmth campaign with the help of local business leaders, sponsors, utility partners and many generous community individuals. The amount raised includes donations that were matched and are eligible to be matched by our partnering utility companies. Even though the event is over, donations are still being accepted at njshares.org/donate. These funds will provide assistance for approximately 600 New Jersey households who are among the 40 percent of the state’s population living paycheck to paycheck and struggling to pay their utility bills due to a temporary financial hardship.
The Ice House Cool Down for Warmth fundraising project provides an opportunity for our donors to be recognized for their giving, attract new donors to our cause, and raise awareness of NJ SHARES and its mission.
