New Jersey Apartment Association to Donate Up to $10K to Governor Christie's Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund

In an effort to help New Jersey continue to move forward in its post-hurricane relief efforts, the New Jersey Apartment Association (NJAA) has made a $5,000 donation to Governor Christie’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.  The organization will also match donations to the fund from its members, for up to an additional $5,000.

“We applaud Governor Christie and his administration, and we are eager to assist his efforts to help those impacted by Hurricane Sandy, and help the Garden State get back to normal as quickly as possible,” said Jean Maddalon, executive director for the NJAA.  “Historically, our members have been very generous, and this initiative gives them another way to give to those in need.”

In addition to NJAA’s contribution, the National Apartment Association (NAA), the NJAA Charitable Fund, the Delaware Apartment Association (DAA) and the Board of the NJAA Charitable Fund have all committed to contribute.
