NJM has always embraced its role as a corporate neighbor by supporting the many communities in which our employees and policyholders live and work.
Here are just a few of the many charitable organizations we have supported:
Special Olympics New Jersey, which is a champion for children and adults with intellectual and/or physical disabilities. NJM served as major corporate sponsor of the tennis events at Mercer County Park for the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games.
The American Red Cross, for both its general relief efforts and its specific efforts related to Superstorm Sandy in 2012.
Junior Achievement, which provides financial-literacy education programs to schoolchildren of various grade levels. The age-appropriate curriculums teach students about the importance of employment, prudently spending and saving money, and the role of businesses in their communities.
HomeFront, which works with families to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness through transitional housing and support programs that encourage them toward a path of self-sufficiency.
Employee Volunteerism at NJM
Over the past year, NJM employees have volunteered their time and talent to support many charitable efforts, including: Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK); Children's Home Society; Junior Achievement; Superstorm Sandy Service Day; and the Sunshine Foundation. A matching program* provides a dollar-for-dollar match of employees' donations to a charity or charities of their choice.
*Employees must complete one year of service to be eligible.
