“Restore New Jersey” will be an ongoing initiative for a minimum of six months.

“As long as the restoration is needed, as long as funds are needed, as long as the help of New Jersey 101.5 is needed, we’ll be there,” said NJ 101.5 Brand Manager Eric Johnson.

“Restore New Jersey” is officially working with the Governor and his wife, Mary Pat, to raise money for their newly set up Sandy NJ Relief Fund to ensure that money stays right here in the Garden State.

The effort will act as a co-op between the station and its listeners to spread the word on the Sandy recovery.

“It’ll basically be a central location for anything related to the restoration of New Jersey,” said Johnson, “We’re asking our listeners to let us know about events, any kind of fundraising events, collection points, distribution points.”

In addition to the on-air and online aspects of this effort, NJ 101.5 will mobilize around the state to help for the duration of the of the recovery.

“We’re just getting started, so we’re going to be using our vans and our manpower,” he explained, “But mostly, the power of New Jersey 101.5′s signal and its audience.”
