Christmas in July

July 25 is the new December 25 at the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital. Members of the New Jersey Police Honor Legion and Santa Claus celebrated “Christmas in July” with patients and their families at the children’s hospital. The officers brought truckloads of gifts, many of which were distributed to pediatric patients and their siblings who attended the celebration. The remaining gifts will be used throughout the year to support patient care. William F. Faverzani, FACHE, MPA, vice president, senior operations officer of Children’s Enterprise at Hackensack Meridian Health, says the event helps the young patients take their minds off being sick and instead focus on having fun. (Note: this event was also featured on WCBS, FIOS1, Fox 5, WLNY-NY, and The Record.)
