Five Weeks of Giving 2014 – James J. Peters V.A. Medical Center

December 18, 2014 in Appaman News

For her Five Weeks of Giving donation, Stephanie has chosen to pay it forward to the James J. Peters V.A. Medical Center in Kingsbridge Road in the Bronx.

Stephanie says:

 ”My Papa was a proud member of the United States Army. He has used the resources at this VA Hospital countless times over the course of his adult life, most especially the last few years. He had a great fondness for his doctors at this hospital, and the care they provide to veterans.  When it came time to sell his house, he donated his elaborate book collection to the library at the hospital.  His last year or so, he unfortunately spent a bit of time as a patient here. He was so happy for the luck that came my way that brought me to Appaman and would love to hear stories about what was going on with the company and to look through the latest season’s catalogs with me! Sadly, my Papa passed away on June 8, 2013, but he would be so proud to have this donation given by Appaman to a place that means so much to him.”

Pay it Forward – Stephanie Fishman

November 30, 2012 in Appaman News

For Stephanie’s “Pay it Forward,” she chose to donate to Volunteer Center of Bergen County, Inc.

In her words:”Every holiday season, I participate in their ‘All Wrapped Up’ program, which connects donors to local individuals in Bergen County, New Jersey who are in need of a little holiday cheer! Every year I ‘adopt’ 2 seniors/disabled individuals, and I get a wish list from their caseworker as to what they may need. Most years, a warm winter coat is first on the list, along with basic necessities and grocery store gift cards. When I meet with the caseworker to drop off the gifts, I get to see the excitement in the faces of some of the members at the senior or rehab center. I feel very lucky to be able to help someone have a better day. I always want to contribute to this organization through other programs as well, so your donation to the Volunteer Center of Bergen County, Inc can help in so many ways — a literacy class for a single mom, a training session for a mentor, a service call for a repair in a disabled individual’s home — so THANK YOU Appaman, for your immense generosity and kindness!”

You’re welcome, Stephanie, and we are sure your charity will appreciate the donation. If you would like more info on this charity click here.
