EVENT DATE: Feb 01, 2018
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Feb 24, 2018
Experience the NJ SHARES’ Cool Down for Warmth February 1 & 2, 2018. We’re building an Ice House on the Prudential Center’s Championship Plaza to showcase the critical importance of heat during the cold winter months.
Cool Down for Warmth will raise funds for local families and seniors who struggle to afford their heating costs in the winter. The Ice House will also help us to raise awareness of NJ SHARES, the families we serve and the generous donors who make our work possible.
Participants will help us to raise funds by soliciting donations from friends and family in advance of the event. Goals are set at $2,500 per team, or $1,000 per individual. Each team or individual will be given a 30-minute timeslot if they wish to sit inside the Ice House and continue to raise funds for this important cause.
Donations may be eligible for a dollar-for-dollar match from our partnering utility companies, and 100 percent of the donations and matching funds will be used to provide utility assistance grants to New Jersey families in need through NJ SHARES.
This event will mark our 20th anniversary of helping New Jersey families stay safe and warm in their homes! NJ SHARES has helped 185,000 households with more than $75 million in energy assistance grants. We have received national recognition for program innovation, outreach and service.
Experience the Ice House and help your neighbors stay warm this winter!
