Bridgewater, NJ – The Somerset Patriots have introduced the Jersey Strong T-Shirt to showcase the message that we are all in this together and will come out stronger than ever.
Each t-shirt is $25, with a portion of the sales benefiting the RWJ Barnabas Health Emergency Response Fund to help the efforts of health care workers during these unprecedented times.
The Jersey Strong T-Shirt is available online only through the Somerset Patriots’ website, Facebook page, and Shopify
“We are really happy with the way the shirts came out,” said Somerset Patriots President/General Manager Patrick McVerry.” We wanted to design something to help people show their Jersey Pride, while raising money for health care workers at RWJBarnabas Health that are serving on the front lines of this pandemic.”
The Jersey Strong T-Shirt is one of many fundraising activities the Somerset Patriots have hosted to raise money for the RWJBarnabas Health Emergency Response Fund. The team has raised over $2,000 already through an online memorabilia auction and a special pop-up shopping event with their partners at Sysco Metro NY. The Somerset Patriots have also provided lunch to doctors, nurses, and health care staff at RWJ University Hospital Somerset to show the team’s appreciation of all of their efforts during the COVID-19 crisis.
