Earthshare New Jersey 20 for 20 Campaign Raises Funds for a Cleaner and Greener NJ in the New Year
ESNJ member organizations are submitting projects to be considered for funding. Once the campaign ends and the public’s areas of interest defined, projects will be announced and the donors will be invited to participate. The objective is to offer opportunities across the state so that all of the supporters can get involved.
“This campaign offers us an opportunity to reach a broader audience and obtain funding for a project we’ve had on our radar for a while,” says Britta Wenzel, ESNJ Board President. “We hope the public will support their passion whether it is air, water, land or wildlife related so that together we can make NJ a cleaner, safer and healthier place to live work and play.”
“The Campaign is a great way for individuals, families, schools, community groups and businesses to rally around NJ's environment and support a project that speaks to them personally,”
“For the past 20 years EarthShare New Jersey has been committed to bringing business and the community together to protect our environment, preserve our natural resources and promote a sustainable economy,” says Kathy Ellis, New Jersey Natural Gas Chief Operating Officer . “New Jersey Natural Gas is proud to share that commitment and support the important work you do. Together, we are helping to create a healthier, greener tomorrow for future generations.”
