NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – One of the city’s longest-standing social impact organizations has established a fund to support the community and non-profit partners during the COVID-19 crisis.
New Brunswick Tomorrow’s New Brunswick Community Response Fund has been created to collect donations to be distributed to those most in need.
“Everyone in our city is being affected by this pandemic, particularly our seniors and low-income children and families,” said Jaymie Santiago, president of New Brunswick Today.
“Our community will face increased struggles because of reduced or lost income, food and housing insecurity, health needs, and childcare needs related to school closures. Our small businesses will be among the hardest hit.”
Numerous community leaders and organizations have pledged support and commitment for the fund, including the City of New Brunswick, the New Brunswick Public Schools, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Metuchen, the Civic League of Greater New Brunswick, MCFOODS, Parker Life and others.
Donations can be made by visiting nbtomorrow.org/donate and by choosing the New Brunswick Community Response Fund from the drop down menu.
For more than 40 years, New Brunswick Tomorrow has been dedicated to improving the quality of life for New Brunswick residents by addressing educational, employment, food, health, housing and safety needs.
