Bloomfield’s Department of Residential Education and Housing (REH) helped give local families a Thanksgiving to remember on Nov. 26, as the division completed its first-ever Help Other People Evolve (H.O.P.E.) initiative with an on-site donation of traditional holiday meals.

Utilizing donations from faculty, staff and students, the department was able to provide an adopted local elementary school with Thanksgiving Meal Boxes on behalf of the institution prior to the holiday.  

Raising $423 in donations, College representatives presented the Lincoln School (an elementary school in Newark, N.J. featuring 250 pre-kindergarten-to-second-grade students) with six holiday turkeys and four complete meal boxes.  Donations also included various canned goods, providing needy families with a memorable Thanksgiving as part of a campus-wide initiative.

“We are so proud to have had so many wonderful donations from all parts of the Bloomfield College community for this amazing program,” REH Director Nicole Faison said.  “We were able to provide families of elementary school children with a Thanksgiving meal, something all families should have on this important holiday.  The recipients were so grateful; we will undoubtedly continue this newfound tradition next year.”

“This was a truly wonderful event, and we are so grateful to Bloomfield College for their generosity,” Lincoln School Social Worker Kaye Pollard said of the initiative. “It really put smiles on the faces of our Lincoln School families, and it really made their Thanksgiving a happy day.   We will absolutely be continuing this relationship with Bloomfield, and we thank them again for their amazing support.”
