Reading is fundamental to the development of children, sparking their imagination and creativity. That’s why NJNG partners with local libraries in the Share-A-Story program, which takes donated books and puts them in the hands of children who need them most. Also, by supporting Read Across America, NJNG helps children understand the importance of literacy and shares with them the joys of reading.

Ocean Fun Days
Held annually each May at Island Beach State Park and Sandy Hook, Ocean Fun Days allows participants to explore the wonders of state's shoreline with local scientists, researchers and environmentalists. This two-day event of FREE family fun includes hands-on marine and environmental programs, exhibits, eco-tours and activities about the beaches and bays of New Jersey.

Through these, and many other initiatives, we're helping to expand educational opportunities in our communities. Education opens the door to a successful career and personal fulfillment that lasts a lifetime.
