” … Having a hospital as our partner is awesome. This is their second year that they’ve done this … This year has been a hell of a year,” said Secaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli.
“We’re trying to do the best we possibly can. We’re doing food drives almost every week now because of the amount of people that are out of work. I think we’re doing 200 or 300 people a week now.”
This year’s Thanksgiving dinner was a drive through to comply with CDC social distancing guidelines. Each family popped their trunk to receive a turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and canned green beans and yams in a contact-less manner.
HRH has been hosting an ongoing drive-through COVID-19 testing program that has tested thousands of Hudson County residents and essential workers since March.
Additionally, the hospital will be providing free turkeys to 200 staff members.
