NJM Contributes $100,000 toward Hunger Relief Across Mid-Atlantic Region

Yearlong Focus on Giving Exceeds $2 Million in Support of Social Service Agencies, Other Nonprofits

NJM Insurance Group today announced a $100,000 donation to benefit hunger relief efforts across the Mid-Atlantic region. This contribution is part of the company’s yearlong commitment to supporting communities through donations totaling more than $2 million in 2022.

NJM’s support of communities is rooted in a culture of purpose-driven service. The company directs charitable contributions toward organizations that support arts and culture, health, community assistance, safety and financial literacy. Other areas of focus include education and enrichment and revitalization programs such as those offered by social service organizations and food banks.

“NJM is a service organization working on behalf of our policyholders and the communities in which they live and work,” said Mitch Livingston, NJM president and CEO. “We partner with nonprofits and organizations dedicated to delivering needed resources that can positively impact lives, and we are privileged to support these causes throughout the region.”

NJM’s $100,000 donation will be distributed among 20 organizations in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. The full list includes:

  • Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank, Ohio
  • Arm In Arm Inc, New Jersey
  • Bucks County Opportunity Council, Pennsylvania
  • Cathedral Kitchen, New Jersey
  • Community Food Bank of NJ, New Jersey
  • Connecticut Foodshare, Connecticut

“We are thankful for NJM’s generous donation to help fight food insecurity in our communities,” said Loree D. Jones Brown, CEO of Philabundance. “Partnerships like this help Philabundance serve nutritious food to more than 135,000 people each week — an astounding one-third of whom are children. We know that fighting hunger requires all hands-on deck and NJM’s donation to fight hunger is an example of that.”

NJM’s philanthropic efforts extend far beyond its charitable donations. The company’s employee engagement activities, including food and clothing drives, provide opportunities to connect and give back to communities. In addition, NJM’s Matching Donation Program provided more than $50,000 in 2022 to a variety of organizations. Community service programs offer employees opportunities to attend community outreach events and volunteer their time and talents, including membership on multiple nonprofit committees and boards.
