Happy Anniversary!!


Congratulations and a very Happy Anniversary to the NJ SHARES/Verizon Lifeline Call Center as it celebrates its 1 year anniversary on October 7th 2006.

The past year has been a very successful one for this exciting partnership between NJ SHARES and Verizon. The Call Center client services have assisted over 107,993 individuals, with over 96,000 inbound and outbound calls. Many of these clients are now able to take advantage of the Verizon Lifeline Telephone Discount.

Verizon Communications makes residential telephone service more affordable in its service area in New Jersey by offering Communications Lifeline and Link Up America Services for qualified, low-income customers.
Communications Lifeline provides a $13.31 maximum credit toward your monthly telephone bill including a full credit for Touch-Tone service. Communications Lifeline allows you to receive the discount by choosing Flat Rate Service, Moderate Use Message Rate Service or Low Use Message Rate Service.

The successful first year of operation is due to the talent and skills of the representatives that handle a huge volume of work on a daily basis. Their compassion and dedication to the Lifeline program led by the talents of their manager, Kimberly Warrick, have made for a winning combination for the NJ community. If you or anyone you know is in need of assistance paying their phone bill please call the NJ SHARES Client Services Center 1-888-337-3339. Representatives are waiting to take your calls from the hours of 9-6, Monday through Friday.

Agency Appreciation Receptions

New Jersey SHARES Agency Appreciation Receptions

Days blur into weeks, weeks into months and before you know it time has flown by and what you meant to get done yesterday still hasn't happened.

There have been so many times that we have wanted to take an opportunity to thank all the agencies that work so hard for their clients on behalf of New Jersey SHARES.

We would like to show our appreciation to every one of our agencies by hosting 3 Agency Appreication Receptions - one in Union County for our northern agencies, one in Mercer County for our central agencies and one in Atlantic County for our southern agencies.

We will be sending out invitations and it is our sincere hope that we will see everyone at a reception nearest them!

It's Raffle Time!

NJ SHARES Fall 2006 "Share the Warmth" Raffle

The dog days of summer will soon turn into the crisp nights of autumn. Wouldn’t it be nice to win $15,000 in cash during this wonderful time of the year? Well, this could be your lucky day.

Our goal is to sell 300 tickets at $100 each. If we sell all of the tickets, NJ SHARES will raise $30,000, and the winning ticket can receive half that amount, or up to $15,000. Whether you buy a ticket alone or as part of a group, you have an excellent chance of winning. Your dream vacation could be just around the corner. If we do not sell all the tickets, the prize money will be pro-rated to the number of tickets sold.

We will be mailing out the NJ SHARES raffle coupon - or you can click the link on our home page to purchase your raffle ticket on line with a credit card. The raffle coupon could be the most valuable raffle you have ever returned. To enter the NJ SHARES ‘SHARE THE WARMTH’ Raffle, complete, detach and return the bottom portion of the raffle application coupon. You can pay by check (payable to NJ SHARES) or credit card by completing the appropriate area on the application. Please be sure to sign the application and include your credit card expiration date. If you would like additional application coupons, please indicate the number on the coupon, or call our office at 609-883-1626 X246.

The winning ticket will be drawn on Tuesday, October 31, 2006 at the NJ SHARES office in Ewing, NJ. The winner need not be present to win.

Your participation not only gives you an excellent opportunity to win up to $15,000 but also will provide much needed assistance to our neighbors who are struggling with their energy bills.

Thank you for your support of NJ SHARES!
