Update from Perla Haltner, Acting Executive Director

Dear Susan G. Komen North Jersey Community,

As we continue to monitor the evolving situation related to COVID-19 (coronavirus), our top priority remains the health and safety of our supporters, volunteers, staff and constituents. While this is a challenging time, we are committed to working together to continue to support the breast cancer community in North Jersey. I want to share a few updates with you on how we are addressing and adjusting to the situation. Most importantly, please know that we understand that the uncertainty and unprecedented nature of these times can be tough on all of us, and we are here to support you and your families.

  • Now through April 1st, our staff will be working remotely to ensure the health and safety of our team, as well as our communities. It will be business as usual, with possible delays. So, please be patient with our staff. We’ll continue to monitor the situation in real time to determine when circumstances change. Thank you for your patience as we work through any adjustments in our process to ensure the most timely responses possible in these circumstances and to ensure our mission is delivered.
  • Regarding the MORE THAN PINK Walk on May 9, 2020 –  We are evaluating all possible options and will provide ongoing updates should the status of our event change. Our top concern is to ensure we have the plans and resources in place to safeguard your health and well-being. Nothing is more important.
  • Despite these changes, we remain intently focused on the needs of our community. Every day, our staff and volunteers work tirelessly to make an impact for breast cancer patients. We will remain dedicated and focused in remaining a trusted source of support and hope for those we serve. Continuing our work to fund and fulfill our mission is crucial.

For information specific to the coronavirus and the most up-to-date information on the situation, please visit CDC.gov. Thank you for understanding as the situation evolves rapidly.

As always, we are here to help. Please feel free to reach out to our team at cure@komennorthjersey.org with any questions.
