It has been more than a year since thousands of New Jerseyans experienced the extreme devastation of Superstorm Sandy. As many continue to struggle to establish a modicum of normalcy for their families and neighborhoods in the aftermath of Sandy, many more may have encountered a variety of other setbacks or tragedies during the last 12 months. Some may have lost a job or home, some may be coping with mounting medical bills, or some may be struggling to take care of a child with special needs or an elderly parent. Understandably, the demands of hardships like these can take quite a toll.
Fortunately for many in distress, numerous charitable organizations in New Jersey are dedicated to ameliorating the suffering. In order to help others, however, these organizations need help from us, the employees of Rutgers University in Newark.
Here’s how we can help. Please consider making a pledge today, either via payroll deduction or a onetime gift, to the New Jersey State Employees Charitable Campaign. Rutgers-Newark employees have an impressive track record of generous support to the campaign over the years. Let’s not only continue that tradition, but endeavor to make this year a banner year of giving. Remember, no amount is too small to make a lasting impact in the lives of those in need!

Last year, the Rutgers-Newark community raised $34,000. The impact of these numbers is staggering, and yet the campaign and Rutgers can do even better. Your contribution will impact those in need – perhaps a neighbor, a student, or a friend. Thank you for helping to make this a successful campaign.
