Holiday Cheer Delivered to Residents in Assisted Living Facilities
Posted: January 5, 2022
Hundreds of holiday cards and gifts were delivered this holiday season to the senior residents of the Sunrise and Brightview assisted living facilities in Randolph. The holiday outreach program was the idea of Councilman Lou Nisivoccia and was endorsed by the township council as a means of spreading holiday cheer to residents of the community’s assisted living facilities.
Councilman Nisivoccia coordinated the effort, which enlisted the support of youth groups from across the community. The youth group members and local students prepared the cards and gifts that were delivered to residents in the months of November and December. Although the pandemic prohibited Councilman Nisivoccia and other members of the council from personally visiting the residents, through the assistance of facility staff the cards and gifts made their way to each resident. The response from the residents has truly been overwhelming.
On behalf of the township council, Councilman Nisivoccia extends gratitude and thanks to everyone who helped make this senior citizen outreach effort possible, which includes students from St. Matthew Faith Formation, Resurrection Parish Y.E.S. youth service group, Gottesman Academy, Randolph High School and Center Grove School.
