Repurposing Reusable Bags

SJI’s Green Team, an internal employee resource group that empowers employees to support & create a sustainable environment in local communities, is partnering with the Community Foodbank of New Jersey to encourage New Jersey residents to donate their extra bags to local food banks and affiliated organizations. Since New Jersey’s single-use plastic bag ban went into effect in May 2022, many residents are finding that they have a surplus of reusable bags. Grocery stores and other retailers are packaging every online pickup and home delivery order in new reusable bags. The result is excess bags, and people are left wondering what to do with them.

The plastic bag ban has also presented a challenge for organizations that package and distribute food to New Jerseyans in need. SJG employees are collecting and donating bags, but you can also get involved! The Community Foodbank of New Jersey is accepting donations of new or clean, gently used reusable bags. Click here to find a donation drop off center near you. You can also encourage your friends and family to donate too.

FREE Mark Cuban Foundation AI Camp for High School Students

We partnered with the Mark Cuban Foundation to host FREE Artificial Intelligence (AI) classes to high school students (9th-12th grade). Students learned what AI is and is not, where we interact with AI in daily life, the ethical implications of AI systems, and much more. Students also learned how to use Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing tool to build AI applications. Classes were held at the South Jersey Gas headquarters in Atlantic City.

Increasing learning opportunities for students interested in science, technology, engineering and math provides a head start to early career exploration. We’re excited to have offered this opportunity!

VETS Food Drive for the Red Cross Service to Armed Forces

Our Veterans Engagement Team (VETS) collected 4,893 pounds of food -- which is enough to feed 272 families! On February 26, 2022, VETS held a food drive with the Red Cross by setting up collection points throughout New Jersey and encouraged customers, employees and families from SJI’s utility companies South Jersey Gas and Elizabethtown Gas to drop off non-perishable items. Volunteers then delivered several truckloads of food to the Red Cross for distribution at the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.
VETS is an employee resource group at SJI that supports the personal growth and professional development of former servicemen and women. The Red Cross Service to Armed Forces program provides home comforts and critical services on bases, in military hospitals and supports military families during deployments and emergencies.
