NJM, Trenton Thunder team up for Safe at Home donation

Groups have combined to donate more than $150K in partnership that has spanned more than a decade

The Trenton Thunder, in conjunction with NJM Insurance Group, has given $9,450 to HomeWorks Trenton as part of the Safe at Home Program — the latest effort in a more than decade-long partnership that has helped raise more than $150,000 for local nonprofit organizations.

Through the Safe at Home Program, NJM Insurance Group makes an annual donation to a local nonprofit based on the total number of runs the Thunder score at all home games throughout the season. The Thunder scored 189 total runs at home this season, allowing HomeWorks Trenton to receive a $9,450 donation from NJM.

Jeff Richardson, NJM’s community outreach and events coordinator, said the partnership is a … wait for it … home run.

“Our Safe at Home partnership with the Trenton Thunder is built upon our shared value of supporting the communities we are privileged to serve,” he said. “This year’s recipient, HomeWorks Trenton, provides critical academic and leadership enrichment designed to empower high school girls. We are delighted to support the organization’s efforts.”

Thunder President Jeff Hurley agreed.

“Each year, we find more value and meaning with our partnership with NJM,” he said. “We could not be happier with the impact and outreach the Trenton Thunder and NJM Insurance Group continue to grow within the region, and we can’t wait to continue and elevate our communal outreach in 2024.”
