Thanks for helping us bring holiday magic to our Village!
Volunteers delivered all the joys of the season to the men, women, and children in our Village throughout November and December. View slideshows of our holiday events below.
Santa pays a visit
Santa and Mrs. Claus left the North Pole ahead of schedule to attend the annual holiday party for the children of Eva’s Village. Visits with Santa, face painting, cookie decorating, limbo dancing, a delicious dinner, and arts and crafts made the evening special. IBEW Local 827 and the Ziploc Gang brought gift bags for the children and their mothers. Read about their donation in the local press.
Holiday Express makes a joyful noise!
After a delicious meal catered by McLoone's Restaurants for Eva's residential clients, a troupe of costumed characters from the North Pole and a band of musicians brought everyone to their feet - dancing, clapping, and singing - to celebrate the winter holidays.
Deck the Halls
Continuing a long tradition, volunteers from St. Leon Armenian Church decked the halls in our Hope Residence for the mothers who live there with their children in our Halfway House and Shelter programs.
Holiday season kickoff!
The New York Giants Rookies and David Tyree, Director of Player Development, brought the holiday spirit to guests in our Community Kitchen a few days before Thanksgiving, continuing a tradition of 20+ years of volunteer service and funding support.
View WMBC TV's broadcast of the Giants' visit.
Elected officials shared the holiday with some of their most vulnerable constituents, serving a festive turkey dinner with all the trimmings to more than 300 guests in our Community Kitchen on Thanksgiving Day. View NJTV's news story.
Thank you for making the holidays merry & bright for the individuals we serve!
We could not do what we do without our donors and volunteers. Thank you for your service and generosity!
It's not too late to make a Holiday Gift!
Many of our programs at Eva's Village, including our Community Kitchen, are funded almost entirely by private donations.
Without the generous support of our donors, we would not be able to provide the 1,300 meals we serve each day to those in need; to offer shelter to the men, women, and mothers with children who have nowhere else to go; and to provide primary medical and dental care to improve the health and well-being of our community.
