PSEG, PSEG Foundation Make New $1.5 Million Holiday Donation

Tuesday, December 22, 2020

In the spirit of service, celebration and charity, PSEG and the PSEG Foundation are donating $1.5 million to 14 organizations throughout the New Jersey and Long Island service territories that provide help to thousands of families and individuals who are struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The nonprofit organizations receiving these surprise year-end contributions address needs that have been exacerbated by the pandemic, such as food insecurity, unemployment, mental and physical health, and poverty. The gifts also will provide support for ongoing issues such as domestic violence, substance abuse and child neglect.

“It is our privilege to be able to support community organizations that are providing much-needed assistance to countless families and communities who are facing enormous hardship because of the coronavirus pandemic,” said Rick Thigpen, PSEG’s senior vice president for Corporate Citizenship and chairman of the PSEG Foundation. “In the spirit of the season, we’re proud to make these Community Gifts on behalf of our employees across New Jersey and New York, and support these organizations that are helping to make things better for people throughout the many diverse communities we serve.”
