These last several weeks leading up to the end of the year have been very active for us at hip. We’re racing deadlines for reports, grant applications and program reviews while hosting meetings and arranging special events. Add the shortened holiday shopping season due to a late Thanksgiving and it can be a recipe for stress.

Well, any stress that we’ve been feeling at hip was wiped away on the morning of December 18 when our friends from St. Peter the Apostle Church in River Edge appeared with four carloads of gifts. Each year they consult with our Independent Living Specialists and ask them to collect wish lists from consumers and their families who may not be able to have gifts for the holidays. They have certainly outdone themselves this year lining our entire office space with bags stuffed with beautifully wrapped presents. All the shopping bags are grouped by number for our own Hudson hip elves to arrive and spend the day distributing the gifts and spending time with the families.

Earlier in December the agency participated in the Bergen County Volunteer Center’s “All Wrapped Up” program and our Bergen staff delivered gifts to folks in their caseloads. 

It’s a great hip tradition that has been coordinated by VP/CFO Trish Carney since it started, and it continues to grow.

I want to take this opportunity to thank the many generous people who contribute to making the Holiday season merry and bright and to all of you who make hip a great place to work. 

Happy Holidays,

Brian

Adventure in the Meadowlands

Adventure in the Meadowlands

On October 21 hip’s Adjustment to Vision Loss consumers enjoyed a wonderful event at the Meadowlands Environmental Center in Lyndhurst. This was an amazing day for us. We had such a great time getting to know everyone and spending time learning about the Meadowlands.

A much appreciated donation to make this possible was made by Genevieve Farrell  and Robbie Fisk in lieu of favors at their wedding on October 5!  

Genevieve Farrell said,”hip’s mission, and the wonderful work being done through the adjustment to vision loss project, really resonated with our guests. We were so honored we could contribute to such an amazing organization.”
