Ocean State Job Lot Donates to Plainfield Area Humane Society

(FREEHOLD,NJ) -- Ocean State Job Lot (OSJL) has announced that its store located at 600 Trotters Way, Freehold, New Jersey has donated $200 to the Plainfield Area Humane Society as part of its “Close to Our Heart” program. 

Since the program's inception in 2020, Close to Our Heart has empowered each OSJL store to choose  organizations to support each year that are meaningful to its associates and the local community. The Plainfield Area Humane Society provides veterinary care and shelter, and works to find the right home for all the animals in their care, including those with special needs or circumstances. 

"Ocean State Job Lot takes pride in our philanthropic work,” said David Sarlitto, Executive Director, Ocean State Job Lot Charitable Foundation. “Through the ‘Close to Our Heart’ program, we make a donation to a local area non-profit that is ‘close to the heart’ of that community. We are grateful to have the opportunity to support those most in need in our local communities and bring awareness to organizations that are doing the hard work every day.” 

The Ocean State Job Lot Charitable Foundation has consistently and actively invested in providing relief to the communities in which it operates. In March 2022, OSJL’s “Relief for Ukraine” program donated health and hygiene products, food, warm clothes and medical supplies for Ukrainian refugee efforts due to the ongoing war. OSJL’s “To The Rescue” program, which concluded this week, benefits animal welfare organizations, wildlife centers, rehabilitation farms and non-profit rescue organizations throughout the Northeast. Currently, OSJL’s “Building Brighter Futures” fundraising campaign is happening in-store and online to directly support organizations that assist children in need.
