Janssen volunteers paint interior of SERV complex

Group2On June 24, 17 volunteers from Janssen Pharmaceuticals in Titusville participated in a Janssen Cares Volunteer Day at Ujima Village in Ewing.

Ujima, operated by SERV Centers of N.J.-Southern Region, is a 52-unit apartment complex for low- and moderate-income seniors and adults with disabilities.

Under the direction of Ujima Building Supervisor Gary Ice, Janssen participants worked for a full day painting walls in common areas such as vestibules and hallways. Volunteers, wearing bright blue T-shirts saying “Janssen Cares,” worked on all four floors of the building.

In addition, Janssen contributed $300 toward materials.IMG 5430
