Friends help make Partial Care Consumers’ Holidays Bright!

Throughout December, the Friends of West Bergen worked hard to organize a very special event that included decorations, presents for all of our residents, a delicious lunch generously donated by Inserra Supermarkets and a visit from Santa himself!

To make the day even more special, our volunteers prepared hors d’oeuvres and brought a beautiful, festive cake for dessert.

Before we welcomed Santa, we all shared what we are grateful for with a gratitude toast (of sparkling cider). The toast was a reflection of the resiliency of our residents. They were grateful for the program, to be cared for and to be accepted.

Sending a big thank you to our Friends members who helped put this event together and a special thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Claus for bringing happiness and joy. This is a holiday celebration our residents will not soon forget.

Recent Friends Projects:

In 2020, thanks to the efforts of Friends and the founding Friends Chair Eileen Wagner, funds raised enabled West Bergen to build a brand new therapeutic playground at the Center for Children & Youth.
