LAKEWOOD — Resident and staff of Harrogate, a Life Care Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in Ocean County collected 266 items of non-perishable goods for the community’s 5th Annual Food Drive. The food will assist the Providence House Domestic Violence Services (PHDVS) of Catholic Charities in providing hot meals for victims of domestic abuse and their children during this holiday season.
“Domestic abuse knows no boundaries, and can occur at any stage in life,” states Kathleen Hansen, Director of Human Resources at Harrogate. “By contributing to PHDVS of Catholic Charities, we hope to help those within our community struggling to break free from the violence in their homes.”
“Each year, we feed over 2,300 people,” states Marcia Fishkin, Providence House Domestic Violence Services of Catholic Charities in Ocean County, N.J. “We are fortunate to have such great community partners like Harrogate who continue to contribute, and help us end the cycle of violence and abuse.”
In December, Harrogate will also host a toy drive to provide children of abused families at the Providence House Domestic Violence Services (PHDVS) of Catholic Charities with toys for the holidays.
