Hightstown, NJ — January 11, 2000 — NJ SHARES (Statewide Heating Assistance and Referral for Energy Services) announced today that it has added Anna K. Lustenberg, Bell Atlantic External Affairs Manager, to its Board of Directors. Lustenberg joins the NJ SHARES board of 12 members, from New Jersey's leading utilities and non-profit organizations. Established in 1998, NJ SHARES is a statewide energy fund that offers assistance to working-class households that are experiencing a financial crisis.

"We're pleased to add Anna Lustenberg and Bell Atlantic to the NJ SHARES Board of Directors," said Lawrence Savitsky, Executive Director of NJ SHARES. "Her experience in community relations and working with utilities and non-profit organizations will make her an asset to the Board."

As External Affairs Manager with Bell Atlantic, Lustenberg has experience in working with a number of non-profit organizations in Middlesex, Somerset and Union Counties to utilize technology, such as computers and the Internet. As a NJ SHARES Board member, Lustenberg's first priority will be to work to develop the NJ SHARES web site to help promote awareness of the program. In addition, Lustenberg will work with New Jersey's leading non-profit organizations and energy utilities on NJ SHARES fundraising and program development.

"Through its External Affairs department, Bell Atlantic has a mission of being a good corporate citizen by joining forces with various non-profit organizations," said Lustenberg. "NJ SHARES and Bell Atlantic are a great match since both organizations are committed to helping those in need, and together we can work to reach more people."

Among several affiliations with non-profit organizations, Lustenberg represents Bell Atlantic on the Union County Workforce Investment Board, the Woodbridge Metro Chamber of Commerce, Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Boys & Girls Club of Union County, New Brunswick Tomorrow, Union County Alliance and Union County Economic Development Corp.

NJ SHARES was established last year by a coalition of the state's leading non-profit organizations and energy providers, including: American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), Community Health Law Project, New Jersey Low Income Energy Network, Association for Children of New Jersey (ACNJ), New Jersey Community Action Association, The Salvation Army, Conectiv, Elizabethtown Gas Co., GPU Energy, Public Service Electric & Gas Co., Rockland Electrick Co., and South Jersey Gas Co.
