GEM prepared cheesy lasagna rolls, Latin vegetarian rice and vegetable
soup using fresh ingredients donated by Whole Foods in a kitchen
provided by No Fuss Lunch in Hawthorne. This latest project organized by
Allison Dalessandro of GEM CARES—the philanthropic branch of GEM Office
Technologies—and HealthBarn Foundation Director, Stacey Antine, proved
successful beyond all expectations: By evening’s end, over 300 meals
were packaged and sent to members of our community.
The majority of the prepared meals went to families of children
undergoing treatment for cancer, serious blood disorders and sickle cell
anemia. The meals were distributed through the Tomorrows Children’s Fund
at Hackensack University Medical Center and the Pediatric
Hematology/Oncology Program at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in
Paterson. Meals were also sent to Ridgecrest Senior Housing and
S.H.A.R.E (Senior Housing Association of Ridgewood and Envrions)
Independent Living for Active Seniors.
This rewarding endeavor was just the latest in a string of successful
community service projects taken on by GEM CARES in recent years.
“The GEM CARES initiative is near and dear to my heart,” said GEM Office
Technologies CEO, Kevin Dalessandro. “The more we grow, the more we plan
to give back to the community that helped us flourish. As always, Alison
did an amazing job ensuring that GEM served our community in a necessary
and meaningful way.”
GEM couldn’t be happier with the outcome of our evening with Healing
Meals and looks forward to a number of impactful community service
projects in the spring and summer. To learn more about GEM CARES, visit: https://gemofficetech.com/gem-cares/
