Golden Girls

Pictured above: The Golden Girls from Wayne and Wanaque volunteer at Eva’s Village, helping the long-time Monday volunteers serve a hot noon meal to the many homeless and poor that come to Eva’s Kitchen each day.

St. Leon Armenian Church, Fair Lawn

Once a month, a group of volunteers from St. Leon Armenian Church, Fair Lawn, comes to Hope Residence to engage the children in an enrichment opportunity. This effort is led by the St. Leon Women’s Guild which coordinates a reading and an activity that promotes a positive message for the children at Eva’s Village. At the visit pictured, they read a story, made cookies and did a craft project.

The Chernalis Family

Anthony Chernalis, owner of the Market Basket, Franklin Lakes, arrived at Eva’s Village on Easter morning with all of the makings for a hearty Easter meal. Joining him were his children and grandchildren to participate in their family tradition of feeding the homeless at Eva’s Kitchen. They prepared the food and served it to the more than 300 people who came for the noon meal. Eva’s would like to thank Mr. Chernalis and his family for their generosity and time.

Junior Girl Scout Troop #1685 from St. Patrick Church, Chatham, visited Eva’s recently to bring their generous donation of welcome packets for Eva’s clients, as well as, cookies, diapers and colorful artwork for Eva’s Youth Art Gallery. The young ladies worked hard to raise awareness about Eva’s mission and were very proud to share their Bronze Award efforts with us.

Passaic High School ONE Club

Students from Passaic High School’s ONE (Ownership, uNity, & Empowerment) Club came to Eva’s for a tour and to share their beautiful and inspiring artwork, for Eva’s Youth Art Gallery, representing Peace and Beauty.

Eva’s was very grateful for their efforts and enthusiasm.

Volunteers from Our Lady of Consolation, Wayne serve lunch at Eva’s Village along with our regular volunteers who come every Thursday to assist in Eva’s Kitchen, serving a hot meal to hundreds of the hungry and homeless.

St. Catherine of Siena, Shepherds of Service, Cedar Grove, came to Eva’s Hope Residence on May 16th to provide an enrichment program for the children. They read a story, made cupcakes and even broke into a modern version of Patty Cake! We are not sure who has more fun the children or the volunteers from St. Catherine!
