…from the New Jersey Arya Samaj
RESIDENTS of the Palms Geriatric Home, Brickdam, last Friday received a donation of clothing, compliments of the New Jersey Arya Samaj Humanitarian Mission. The clothing was handed over to Ms. Pauline Davis, Acting Administrator of the Palms, by Pandit Suresh Sugrim, President of the New Jersey Chapter of the Arya Samaj, and witnessed by members of the nursing staff and the inmates themselves.
Pandit Sugrim, who has been making frequent donations to charitable organizations, the poor and less fortunate among other deserving cases, said that the items distributed on this occasion were from sole donor, Guyanese-born Mrs. Juliet Ganpath of Queens New York.
Ms. Davis, on behalf of the residents, expressed gratitude to the donor, noting how good it feels to know that their needs are being considered, and not only at Christmas, but at other times during the year.
She said she was impressed that the gifts were donated out of true love and by people who genuinely want to help the residents who had, in their time, served the country.
