Kimberly-Clark’s Cottonelle donated 10,000 rolls of toilet paper to United Way of Greater Mercer County (UWGMC), part of Cottonelle’s commitment to make sure toilet paper is accessible to the community throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Together, United Way, Cottonelle, Mercer Street Friends and Jewish Family and Children Services are partnering for community progress by making sure that individuals and families in Trenton, Ewing, Princeton, Hamilton, Cranbury, Lawrenceville, East Windsor and Hightstown have access to basic needs.

JM Group was able to raise $18,000 to support two local organizations, Mercer Street Friends Food Bank and YWCA Princeton’s Breast Cancer Resource Center.

Despite the impact COVID-19 had on restaurants, the Princeton community rallied behind two JM Group events, their annual meal drive and a week-long “takeout” version of their annual Pink Pearl Night, according to information provided by JM Group.

Event sponsors included Borden Perlman Insurance, Callaway Henderson Sotheby’s, and NJM Insurance Group.

 

“Mercer Street Friends remains grateful to Jack Morrison and the JM Group for so many years of support, particularly this past year. The pandemic shined a light on the basic needs of our neighbors. Like they always do, Jack and the JM Group responded to the calls for help by offering financial support to the Mercer Street Friends Food Bank, which in turn, provided assistance in feeding students, individuals and families in Trenton and Mercer County,” Bernie Flynn, CEO of Mercer Street Friends, said in the statement.
