A Letter from Mary Pat

During the Governor’s inauguration, Chris and I talked about how to make inauguration day special by highlighting ordinary New Jersey citizens doing extraordinary things for their communities. Thus the idea of NJ Heroes (NJH) was born. Chris highlighted five citizens in his inauguration speech that were involved with incredible organizations, from growing fresh food for local food banks and soup kitchens to creating a website where everyday people can grant wishes for those in need. We were so inspired by the stories we heard and the people we met, that I decided to carry on the NJH initiative as First Lady. I hope you will consider supporting NJ Heroes so that we can continue to celebrate those that make us proud in our great state.

All my best,

Mary Pat Christie

First Lady of New Jersey
