Wakefern Food Manager of Corporate Social Responsibility Rob Zuehlke and Johnson & Johnson Vice President of Global Community Impact Lauren Moore were featured in an article highlighting the philanthropic efforts of New Jersey-based companies during the pandemic.
Regarding Wakefern’s $1-million donation to food banks in nine states and their various other initiatives throughout the pandemic, Rob Zuehlke said, “Wakefern and its cooperative members have always been committed to fighting hunger and supporting the communities where our stores operate. This commitment was especially critical during the pandemic, as our food bank partners were experiencing increased need and demand.”
On top of developing a COVID-19 vaccine, J&J has been giving back in other ways over the past year. Laure Moore said, “Our employees are at the core of what J&J is able to achieve each day. It is because of their unwavering commitment, which we saw in action tenfold over the last year, that we were able develop a COVID-19 vaccine in record time, support front-line health workers around the world, and ensure our own employees were able to give back through our Talent for Good and COVID-19 Medical Personnel Leave Policy.”
