MENDHAM–The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund announced that AT&T has donated $1 million to New Jersey’s recovery from Hurricane Sandy.
“This gracious and significant donation will galvanize the Relief Fund and expand our reach and services throughout the Garden State,” said First Lady Mary Pat Christie, who serves as chair of the fund. She added, “We cannot thank AT&T enough for their commitment to New Jersey and its most devastated towns and neighborhoods. I look forward to collaborating with AT&T in order to maximize the benefit of this contribution.”
“As part of the New Jersey community, AT&T felt compelled to do its part to advance disaster relief efforts in the state,” explained J. Michael Schweder, president, AT&T Mid Atlantic. “The state was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy and like so many Americans across the country AT&T wanted to help neighbors, friends and family rebuild their homes and return to normalcy.”
Thus far, the Fund has collected over $8 million from over 4,000 donors in less than one week. The donations will help rebuild New Jersey communities, aide in the recovery effort and fill in the gaps where people and communities need help.
