“At SJI, our mission is to deliver safe, reliable, affordable energy to our 725,000-plus customers and businesses in New Jersey,” Melissa Orsen, senior vice president, SJI, and president, SJI Utilities, said. “We are pleased to partner with N.J. SHARES, as they are such a strong community resource providing utility assistance to customers who need it the most.”
“We are so grateful to South Jersey Gas and Elizabethtown Gas for this generous donation. These important funds will help make a difference for struggling New Jersey families around the State,” Cheryl Stowell, CEO of New Jersey SHARES, said.
