NJM Insurance Group giving $400K to COVID relief

NJM Insurance Group has committed $400,000 to COVID-19 relief efforts, the West Trenton-based insurer announced Tuesday.

The funding will go toward nonprofits and statewide efforts in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, the company said, ranging from organizations helping children and families to the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund.

“Community support and corporate giving are essential in times of challenge and uncertainty,” CEO and President Mitch Livingston said in a prepared statement. “Our commitment to these relief efforts is rooted in NJM’s core principles. During this very difficult time, we will remain true to our pledge to support the communities we are privileged to serve.”

NJM also has donated 15,000 pieces of personal protective equipment and is providing warehouse space to Mercer Street Friends for its food bank operations in Mercer County.

“Our communities are fortunate to have so many organizations that are making a positive impact at a time of unprecedented hardship for so many,” Livingston said. “NJM is proud to support these organizations, and we are sincerely grateful for their efforts.”
