"I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to NJ SHARES and all the people who have donated to the fund. I can't tell you how thankful we are for the grants we received for both gas and electric. After suffering a serious medical condition and becoming disabled and unemployed for several months the grants helped us keep the lights on and the house heated. It was a huge help getting us back on feet."
