Dec-16-15 Governor Christie’s “Season of Service” Continues
New Jersey Labor Department Joins in Goodwill Holiday Luncheon
HARRISON, N.J., December 16, 2015 – New Jersey’s Department of Labor and Workforce Development continued Governor Chris Christie’s annual “Season of Service” initiative today, as staff helped to serve holiday meals to guests of the Goodwill Industries of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey at the organization’s headquarters in Harrison.
Assistant Commissioner Jeffrey Stoller and Chief of Staff Gary Hasenbalg represented the Department of Labor, carrying trays of meals to tables where guests were seated for the luncheon. The guests included consumers of Goodwill Industries and individuals participating in its employment programs.
The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development has maintained a strong relationship with Goodwill, providing grants in the past for the charitable organization to train and provide full-time employment to people with disabilities and to assist single parents in re-entering the workforce.
Embracing the spirit of the holiday season, all cabinet officials in the Christie administration are spending time volunteering and highlighting service opportunities as part of the administration’s Fifth Annual “Season of Service,” which the Governor and First Lady initiated in 2011. Christie administration officials will continue to volunteer their time and highlight service opportunities around the state throughout December.
