Princeton Hurricane Sandy Relief Drive Raises More Than $36,000

“We are grateful to all of the local businesses who helped support this effort and are proud to be part of such a giving community,” Morrison said.

 

Local Princeton businesses raised more than $36,000 for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts on its day of local shopping on Nov. 20, JM Group President and fundraiser organizer Jack Morrison has announced. 

“We are grateful to all of the local businesses who helped support this effort and are proud to be part of such a giving community,” Morrison said. 

The Princeton Business Community launched the Princeton Hurricane Sandy Relief Drive on Nov. 20, from 9 a.m. to midnight.

That day customers were invited to shop and dine locally at participating businesses in the Princeton region. Fifty-four local businesses participated by donating a percentage of their sales from that day, which resulted in more $36,000 in donations. This amount was distributed to charities including the “Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund” and “Restore Our Shore,” benefitting those most affected in New Jersey’s coastal areas.

The area’s local businesses donated more than just dollars. Other contributions included advertising, printing, radio airtime and graphic designs.  That, along with the percentage of sales earned that day, enabled the drive to donate the monies to much needed families.
