Everyone Wins When You Give
Fellow State Employees:
Every morning, tens of thousands of our hardworking neighbors get up and go to work for the people of New Jersey.
They teach our children, keep our communities safe, protect our environment, maintain our parks, improve our roads, bring us clean water, register our cars, administer our elections, promote our good health and so much more.
In leading our Department of Environmental Protection, I see so clearly, every day, the spirit of service, the pure heart that motivates our public employees. It inspires me and I am immensely grateful for their devotion.
It is an honor to serve the people of our state beside each of you and I’m excited to join you in expanding the reach of your good work as the chair of the 2022 New Jersey Employees Charitable Campaign.
This special campaign is supported solely by public servants and helps more than 700 charities that are working to improve the lives of people and communities across a broad array of issue areas. It embodies the same spirit of community and service that drive us, as public servants, every day.
Contributing to the annual campaign is an opportunity to help a charity that is near and dear to your heart – whether you wish to provide food for the hungry, rescue defenseless animals or help to better equip children with school supplies. Or perhaps you’d like to fund cancer research, assist in the planting of trees in urban areas or support another worthy cause.
We are in the 37th year of the campaign and I’m hoping that you’ll join me in giving our greatest assistance to these organizations as we work to reach our goal of $750,000 this year.
It’s easy to pledge. You can make a one-time gift, or choose to have a recurring donation deducted right from your paycheck as a state employee.
The minimum donation is $2 per paycheck. Those $2 can provide trash bags and gloves for two stream cleanups; or legal services to survivors of domestic and relational violence; or art supplies to two remote-learning special needs children weekly.
The generosity of public servants has helped to strengthen and support communities big and small all across New Jersey, also helping us to be stronger together. And that’s something we can all be truly proud of.
So join us in donating to the 2022 campaign. You can make a difference!
And thank you for all you do every day for the people of this great state.
All the best,
Shawn M. LaTourette
Commissioner, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection
