Accepting Donations to our Employee Appreciation Fund
First and foremost, we wish to thank the many generous families, vendors, and local businesses that have donated meals and snacks to Reformed Church Home over the past few weeks. We are so grateful and humbled by your show of support!
In our desire to make sure every member of our 24 hours / 7 days a week team feels appreciated and also to ensure the safety of our residents and staff by controlling the food deliveries we receive, we are asking those who wish to show their appreciation do so in one of the following ways. We can assure you these donations will be dedicated to our Employee Appreciation Fund to be used to help our staff get through these difficult times by providing meals and encouragement for them while they are providing for our residents.
- Donations by check should be made payable to Reformed Church Home and sent to: Development Office, Reformed Church Home, 1990 Route 18 N, Old Bridge, NJ 08857. Please include a note or reference on the check for the Employee Appreciation Fund.

Bringing items to residents of the home
We understand some families wish to drop off supplies or clothing at the front door. Before doing so, please use a disinfecting wipe to wipe down the outside of all items, while wearing gloves. If at all possible, before delivering items to RCH, let them sit for the recommended amount of time in which the virus should dissipate. (24 hours for paper and cardboard; 72 hours for plastic and shiny surfaces) I found this resource that gave a good summary of how long the virus lives on surfaces. https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2020/03/this-is-how-long-coronavirus-lives-on-surfaces. All items should be placed in a plastic bag and tied at the top with the resident's name and room number. Please do not bring unbagged items.
In summary, if you can avoid bringing items before having them in your possession 72 hours or more, and then wiping them down before placing them in a bag, that would be ideal. Please also remind your family member to remove the items from the bag when they are delivered, immediately discard the bag in the trash in the room, and then wash hands for at least 20 seconds.
For everyone’s safety, thank you so much for your cooperation!
