NEW JERSEY NATURAL GAS ANNOUNCES OVER $23,000 IN DONATIONS TO SUPPORT COMMUNITY FOOD BANKS

03/26/2020 - For Immediate Release

WALL, N.J., March 25, 2020 – With the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continuing to impact the lives of New Jerseyans and placing added stress on the resources of community non-profits, New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) today announced it has donated over $23,000 to support community food banks operating in its service territory. 

“This public health crisis is impacting our state and communities in a sharp and unprecedented way, and our community food banks are being called on like never before,” said Steve Westhoven, President and CEO of New Jersey Natural Gas. “The work of these organizations is vital, and NJNG is committed to supporting their mission as they step up to meet the needs of families during this critical time.”

The donations, which were delivered today, total nearly $15,500 to Fulfill, which operates in Monmouth and Ocean counties, and over $7,700 to the Interfaith Food Pantry, which operates in Morris County.

“We are grateful to NJNG for generously supporting Fulfill’s mission at this critical time. With businesses and schools closed, we are experiencing an enormous spike in the need for food during this health crisis. NJNG’s support will help us provide more of our neighbors in need with Crisis Relief Boxes packed with nutritious food,” said Fulfill CEO and President Kim Guadagno, the former Lieutenant Governor of New Jersey.”

“All of us at the Interfaith Food Pantry are so grateful to NJNG for making a difference for our neighbors in their time of need,” said Carolyn Lake of Interfaith Food Pantry. “From the energy assistance programs made available throughout the year to helping us ensure food security for New Jersey’s most vulnerable residents in their greatest time of need, their efforts strengthen our communities and provide hope and inspiration during these trying times. Thank you for your ongoing support, and for truly caring!”

NJNG also reminds its customers that energy assistance programs are available to help those experiencing difficulty with their utility bills.  If you or someone you know is a NJNG utility residential customer in need of assistance, call 800-221-0051 and say "energy assistance" at the prompt to speak with an NJNG customer service representative or email us at energyassist@njng.com.
