Local restaurant company raises $18,000 to support community organizations

The JM Group, owner of the Witherspoon Grill, Kristine’s, the Blue Point Grill and Nassau Street Seafood, has raised about $18,000 in recent months with the help of sponsors and patrons to support two community organizations during the pandemic. The JM Group raised money for the Mercer Street Friends Food Bank through an annual meal drive, and raised money for the YWCA Princeton’s Breast Cancer Resource Center through a weeklong takeout version of the annual Pink Pearl Night.

Sponsors included Borden Perlman Insurance, Callaway Henderson Sotheby’s International Realty, and the NJM Insurance Group.

“Mercer Street Friends remains grateful to Jack Morrison and the JM Group for so many years
of support, particularly this past year,” said Bernie Flynn, CEO of Mercer Street Friends. “The pandemic shined a light on the basic needs of our neighbors. Like they always do, Jack and the JM Group responded to the calls for help by offering financial support to the Mercer Street Friends Food Bank, which in turn, provided assistance in feeding students, individuals and families in Trenton and Mercer County.”
