Your WARM HEART Can Heat a Home!

World renowned Ice and Sand Sculptor, Ed Jarrett is teaming up with NJ SHARES to build an Ice House that will showcase the critical importance of heat during the cold winter months. NJ SHARES friends and supporters will help us raise funds by sitting inside the cold ice house. NJ SHARES will be celebrating 20 years of our accomplishments – and preparing for the next 20 years – of helping low, moderate and fixed income families.

Help Us Raise Funds by Joining Cool Down for Warmth

NJ SHARES helps seniors and families maintain or restore their utilities. As part of our efforts to help our neighbors, we will be hosting a unique and exciting fundraising opportunity called NJ SHARES’ Cool Down for Warmth! On January 31, 2018 ice sculptor, Ed Jarrett will build a house of ice on the Prudential Center’s Championship Plaza in downtown Newark.

The event will kick-off on February 1 and wrap-up on February 2.  Willing participants will stay in the house until they have met a fundraising goal of $2,500 per team, or $1,000 per individual.  Donations may be eligible for a dollar-for-dollar match from our partnering utility companies and 100 percent of the donations and matching funds will be used to provide utility assistance grants to qualified New Jersey households in need.
