Join us as we celebrate the Magic of NewBridge

Monday, March 25, 2013

NewBridge Services, Inc. will honor its longest-serving volunteer, a 277-year-old congregation, and New Jersey’s oldest and largest publicly owned utility for supporting their communities at its 50th Anniversary Gala on March 22.

The honorees are: Jeffrey Gillman, who has devoted more than 40 years to NewBridge’s growth; The First Reformed Church of Pompton Plains, which played a key role in NewBridge’s founding, and PSE&G, whose employees worked around the clock after Superstorm Sandy to restore power in towns ravaged by flooding and toppled trees.

“NewBridge recognizes these honorees for their contributions to building stronger communities through volunteerism, financial support and a deep commitment to solving problems,’’ said NewBridge CEO Robert L. Parker.

Gillman, 71, of Pequannock Township, served 18 years on NewBridge’s board of trustees, including six as president, and helped raise at least $500,000 so the nonprofit could expand its services and reach more people. 

NewBridge traces its roots to The First Reformed Church of Pompton Plains, where the Rev. Donner A. Atwood, one of NewBridge’s founders, was pastor. Many of the nonprofit’s early volunteers belonged to the congregation, which has a longstanding commitment to community service.

PSE&G employees are first responders in disasters, and are also active volunteers in their communities. PSE&G promotes and supports volunteerism among employees, and proudly recognizes their efforts. 

The honorees will be recognized at NewBridge’s 50th Anniversary Gala at The Madison Hotel in Morris Township.  The fundraiser features dinner and dancing, silent and live auctions, a wine raffle and Helping Hands balloons.  For more information, contact Victoria Hess at (973) 686-2230 or vhess@newbridge.org, or visit www.newbridge.org.
