Packages of Hope

Newark, NJ – On the last day before the holiday weekend, AvaCare Medical workers stood in the cold rain, sparking warmth in the homeless and needy of Newark, NJ with self-care packages they had packed themselves in the company warehouse a few days earlier. In just 3 hours, 500 packages containing basic hygiene supplies, such as shampoo, soap, deodorant, mouthwash, and toothpaste, were distributed to the hundreds of people who lined up at the St. James Social Service building.
