Giving thanks to those that give back

Posted Mon, Dec 18th, 2017 News

Gratitude begins in our hearts and then dovetails into behavior. It almost always makes you willing to be of service, which is where the joy resides.

We continue being thankful during this blessed holiday season by extending thanks to Marylou and Jerome Bongiorno. Marylou and Jerome volunteer in a different but equally impactful way. The music they play soothes the souls of the men and women who come to us in their hour of need. Whenever they come to play the atmosphere is more subdued and spirits are higher. They are local film makers in the Newark area who are very knowledgable about the conditions the men and women live in. I believe it is this knowledge that keeps them coming back and provides a burning desire to give back in anyway they can. Recognition of their fellow mans blight drives them to do more and be better. Newark and St John's are truly blessed to have volunteers who hold themselves to such a high standard. That is why we are continually thankful for their service, and look forward to every visiit they make.
