Greiner will receive the honor June 11, during the organization’s 21st annual event. The event, the United Way’s largest annual fundraiser, will be virtual this year.
Greiner will be honored for the time and resources he has dedicated over the past decade to helping the 130,000 households in the northern New Jersey region that were ALICE — Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed — or in poverty before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Proceeds from the gala will help to support these households.

“It is an honor to support the mission of the United Way of Northern New Jersey as it fights for racial and financial equity for families who are one hardship away from extreme distress,” Greiner said. “The United Way’s data-driven approach to identify and advocate for the underserved ALICE population became even more important last year during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“That distress came for many of those families who never before qualified for federal or state financial aid … and the United Way stepped in to help those in need. I’m proud of the work that United Way of Northern New Jersey has done to help those families, and I’m grateful to the organization that has been part of my life for over 20 years.
“My wife, Amanda, and I want to thank the organization for the 2021 United Way Spirit Award, and we look forward to continuing our effort to helping struggling families reach personal and financial success.”
