Paramus, New Jersey

 
 

newjerseyteamMy friends Bill Gordon and Thomas Pluck joined me at the New Jersey Veterans Home in Paramus where we played Bingo with the residents. The experience was real and joyful and heartbreaking at the same time. It was great to hear some fantastic stories of lives lived, and it hurt to hear the stories of lives lost. It shifted my perspective in a meaningful way and I am sure I won’t forget it anytime soon.

We worked with Jersey Cares to find the opportunity–an excellent resource for narrowing down volunteer opportunities by interest and availability.
