Food Bank of Old Bridge Receives Heartfelt Donation from Reformed Church Home
November 18, 2016 – Old Bridge, NJ – Reformed Church Home presented several hundred pounds of nonperishable food and over $1600 in cash contributions to the Food Bank of Old Bridge during a brief celebration on November 18 at the assisted living/skilled nursing community. Mayor Owen Henry and Food Bank Manager Diane Amabile were on hand to accept the donations and mingle with residents and staff. The food items will be used to support those less fortunate in Old Bridge Township during the Thanksgiving holiday and winter months.
RCH staff members Lynne Meehan (Dining Services Director), Marie Trezza (Development Director), and Laurie Vagrin (Activities Director) led the campaign to benefit the Food Bank and continue a tradition established at Reformed Church Home several years ago. This year, RCH ran multiple fund-raising contests, sold T-shirts and hats, sold $1 pin-up tags displayed in the lobby, and collected food under the global “Stop Hunger” initiative. The most successful of the endeavors was a highly competitive “Coin Wars” challenge in which various teams of RCH employees contributed spare change and dollar bills for the Food Bank. The second floor nursing staff and the administration teams tied for collecting the most money of the nine participating teams.
VA Ceremony Held at Reformed Church Home
November 11, 2016 – Old Bridge, NJ – Reformed Church Home hosted a Veteran’s Recognition and Pinning Ceremony this November to honor all residents who served in any branch of the US Military or Foreign Service. The program was sponsored and presented by Vitas Healthcare and included patriotic songs and stories.
Each veteran was recognized with an American flag pin and a personalized certificate thanking them for their service, presented by Retired US Army First Sergeant Craig Martin, MBA. As the current Veterans Liaison for Vitas, Sgt. Martin’s role is to assist veterans and families in determining benefits for which they may be eligible, as well as provide a resource for VA information that may be difficult to obtain or understand.
The activities department at RCH collected brief histories of each veteran’s tour of duty, and a biography was read as each person was honored. According to Kate Shepard, Executive Director at Reformed Church Home, “We so appreciate the men and women that have served and are grateful to Vitas for sponsoring such a moving program. It was so well attended with many family members expressing appreciation for the exceptionally well-planned event.”
