The Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey recognizes AmeriHealth New Jersey as a 2019 Company that Cares
Cranbury, NJ, March 21, 2019 — AmeriHealth New Jersey has been named a 2019 Company that Cares by the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey (CIANJ). The company was honored at the 6th Annual Awards Reception hosted by CIANJ in partnership with COMMERCE magazine for its work with HomeFront, a local nonprofit whose mission is to break the cycle of poverty and end homelessness in Central New Jersey.
“At AmeriHealth New Jersey we have been supporting local community organizations for 25 years, and it’s truly an honor to be recognized by the CIANJ with this philanthropic award,” said Mike Munoz, market president for AmeriHealth New Jersey. “We are proud to have fostered a strong relationship with HomeFront and commend them for their tireless dedication to serving New Jersey residents.”
This year’s selection of companies was decided by a panel of judges including CIANJ staffers and representatives from non-profit organizations. The winners are featured in a special “Companies that Care” section in the March issue of COMMERCE magazine, the media arm of the CIANJ.
In 2018 AmeriHealth New Jersey associates dedicated approximately 340 volunteer hours to HomeFront, helping in the food pantry sorting donations and preparing food bags as well as organizing items in the warehouse, creating diaper bags and helping stock the “Free Store” with donations. AmeriHealth New Jersey also spent its annual United Way Day of Caring onsite assisting Homefront and partnered with them in a Thanks for Giving drive, where associates donated more than 500 diapers, 100 cans of food and dozens of cereal boxes for families supported by the organization. HomeFront has a comprehensive service model providing homeless and at-risk families housing assistance, tools for self-sufficiency, children’s enrichment programming and all the essentials, so families can live a life of dignity.
CIANJ is a statewide business advocacy organization, representing more than 950 corporate members from every industry sector.
