The group treated the children and their families to holiday carols and fun.  During the visit, they carried baskets filled with gifts, including candy, coloring books, crayons and cross word puzzle books, which they distributed to pediatric patients and staff at the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital.  The group also visited geriatric patients in the Elder Life unit and outpatients in the John Theurer Cancer Center, entertaining patients and their families with songs and great conversation. The group visits HackensackUMC several times a year to commemorate special occasions, including Christmas.
