Christmas can be difficult for those who are missing family and loved ones. Unfortunately, the intensity of the COVID-19 pandemic is causing many older adults to be apart from loved ones this December – especially residents of retirement homes.

Students in Eastern Christian High School’s journalism class decided to do something about that. Using their journalism platform to reach the local community, the class wrote an article about the Holland Christian Home in hopes that others might join them in sharing love and cheer with residents this holiday season. How? By participating in a “Christmas Care Drive.”

Anyone is welcome to contribute to the HCH Resident Christmas Care Drive. You can send a personalized card and/or purchase a gift through our Amazon Wish List. All items should arrive at the Home by Monday, December 21 (this is necessary to allow time for disinfection and distribution before Christmas).

You can address cards to “Dear Resident” or “Dear Friend.” Please send items to:

Holland Christian Home – Christmas Care Drive
151 Graham Avenue
North Haledon, NJ 07508

Thank you for rememering the residents of the Holland Christian Home this Christmas season! Every act of kindness makes a difference.
