To celebrate our 20th Anniversary, NJ SHARES is proud to present Cool Down for Warmth – a unique fundraising event to take place on February 1 & 2, 2018.  The event will feature an ice house, constructed on the Prudential Center Championship Plaza in downtown Newark and allow all willing participants to 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 New Jersey families in need through NJ SHARES.

Thank you to our sponsors!

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.
