Elks and UNICO Bring Holiday Cheer to Arc Residents

The Cedar Grove Elks Lodge and West Essex UNICO each contributed to making the holidays a merry season for The Arc of Essex County residents.

Residents from the Belleville, Green Ave, and Cedar Grove Group Homes enjoyed visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus, music, pizza, ice cream, and gifts at the Cedar Grove Elks Lodge #2237 Christmas Party on December 3 at St. Catherine’s of Siena School in Cedar Grove.

On December 18, West Essex UNICO catered a Christmas dinner for 30 of The Arc of Essex County’s residents and staff at the West Caldwell, Green Avenue, Verona, and Cedar Grove group homes. The meal included antipasto, meatballs, and pasta.

The Arc of Essex County and those we serve would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Cedar Grove Elks and West Essex UNICO for their continued generosity during the holiday season.
