It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas thanks to the Tuesday Morning Club of Madison who dropped off gifts for the residents! Cheshire Home residents (and staff!) were so impressed with the beautiful, hand-knit scarf and hat sets the Club donated.
The gift sets were passed out to residents who were thrilled, as the cold weather has just begun to set in. Every hat and scarf given out was unique and special. We are so grateful to the Tuesday Morning Club for thinking of our residents and brightening their day with their kind gesture!
It started as a challenge when a grandfather of nine asked his grandchildren to come up with an idea of a way to give back around the holidays. The most creative and plausible idea would be put into action. That is how Steady Socks started. Now a freshman in high school, Simran Manhas, the granddaughter with the best idea, has been collecting and distributing socks to those in need.
Simran, with the help of her mother, Kim Chhugani, brought a donations of 70 pairs of Steady Socks to Cheshire Home yesterday and were met by Executive Director, George Zeitler, Director of Nursing, Madelyn Cerrato, Associate Director of Development, Kim Boyer and grateful residents.
Thank you Simran for your dedication to our community and for making Cheshire Home resident’s holiday merry and bright!
Decorated for the holidays, Cheshire Home celebrated with music, food and festive attire. Cheshire chefs prepared a special holiday dinner, gifts were given out and a few staff members performed “O Holy Night.” The evening was special and enjoyed by all.
Every December, Faith Lutheran Church in New Providence gives a gift to every resident. This year, residents could choose from a blanket or a sweatshirt. The gift put a smile on our residents faces and they were much appreciated.
The night was a huge success, and a fun time was had by all. Thank you to everyone who helped in making the celebration a success. It is always special when residents and staff can share a meal and a celebration.
