TOMS RIVER – Veolia North America, which serves 1.6 million customers with high-quality drinking water across New Jersey, donated $10,000 to Community Services, Inc., an organization focused on helping high-risk and disabled residents with a diverse range of wellness and outreach services in Ocean County.
“This contribution will enrich the lives of residents in our communities,” said Jim Mastrokalos, Senior Director of Operations. “We are pleased to support Community Services and the highly respected and comprehensive services it has provided for over 50 years.”
Community Services, Inc., also recognized as Meals on Wheels, provides health, wellness, educational and outreach services in New Jersey, including helping residents apply for financial assistance for water bills.
“We are grateful to Veolia for its $10,000 donation to our organization, which will be extremely helpful to our clients’ health and economic interests,” Jim Sigurdson, Executive Director, Community Services, Inc. said. “Our mission goes beyond filling basic nutritional needs and will allow our team to expand access to clients with food services as well as with temporary, essential financial assistance application through Veolia’s non-profit program, Veolia Cares.”
Veolia Cares is financially supported by Veolia and administered by New Jersey SHARES, a non-profit organization that provides help to eligible individuals and households. Veolia granted almost $26,000 last year to customers in New Jersey requiring temporary assistance with water bills. More information is available by visiting cares.veolia.org.
