Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, and fellow high profile New Jerseyans have banded together to publicize the newly formed New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund. Variety.com posted the clip, which also features such notables as New Jersey First Lady Tammy Murphy, Danny DeVitto, Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and others, to publicize the new charitable organization.
Springsteen was filmed at home and explained to viewers, “These are uncertain times. What is for certain is the pain, the fear and the real needs of many of our neighbors, our friends and certainly all of those who are on the front lines of this pandemic. We are practicing social distancing, and we are staying at home.”
According to the newly created website (NJPRF.org), the Relief Fund will “marshal resources across the state to identify critical needs and fight the economic and social impact of COVID-19 on New Jersey’s vulnerable communities. One hundred percent of donations received online by NJPRF will be used to fight the medical, social, and economic impact of COVID-19 on New Jersey’s most vulnerable, supporting organizations that provide essential services and aiding those on the front lines of the pandemic.”
