Bridgewater Garden Club Creates Holiday Arrangements for Zufall in Somerville

Somerville, NJ – For many years members of the Bridgewater Garden Club have delivered holiday joy through their generous donation of expertly crafted baskets of fragrant arrangements.  Once again, the cheery team arrived with baskets of bright seasonal greenery, berries and bows.  The beautiful arrangements are then placed all around the Zufall Health Center located at 71 Fourth Street in Somerville.

“We gratefully thank our loyal friends from the Bridgewater Garden Club for these lovely and fragrant arrangements. They are a welcome addition to our Somerville medical center and bring enjoyment to both patients and staff,” said Eva Turbiner, President and Chief Executive Officer of Zufall Health.

“For nearly 30 years Zufall has provided access to compassionate and comprehensive medical services to the thousands of patients we serve each year and we are sincerely grateful for these talented members of the Bridgewater Garden Club for their many years of support to help us further our mission in the community,” Turbiner added.

Dover, NJ — Army veteran Frank Mazzie hadn’t seen a dentist in a dozen years, so he jumped at the chance for what he considered a “goodwill mission for my mouth.”

The Nutley resident and more than 200 other veterans from North and Central Jersey flocked to Dover this weekend to be part of the state’s first ever Mission of Mercy — Smiles for Our Heroes, a Veteran’s Day observance to honor them with free, much-needed dental care and more.

The two-day event, a partnership of Delta Dental of New Jersey and Zufall Health, brought together 140 volunteer dental professionals and clinical and non-clinical support staff to provide services ranging from cleanings and x-rays to root canals, extractions, and even dentures.

“Paint For Prevention” Event Explores Healthy Relationships Message

Zufall Health’s Sexual Assault Support Services (SASS) program partnered with The Center for Great Expectations (CGE) to host the first “Paint for Prevention” event, which was held during CGE’s “Family Night” on October 18th. In attendance were CGE staff, CGE clients and their family members.

“Paint for Prevention” reinforced concepts learned by CGE clients earlier in the year in the Safe Dates Curriculum, a 10-week course exploring components of healthy relationships. The event began with a brainstorming session and open discussion facilitated by Arianna Cohen, SASS Prevention Coordinator, on the characteristics of healthy relationships. These characteristics were then incorporated into the group’s paintings. Tiffany Bradford, owner of Picasso Play Dates, guided the painting session for the evening.

All participants kept their paintings as a way of sustaining the message of healthy relationships. They were also provided with community resources that support people experiencing dating/sexual violence. This event was funded by the New Jersey Department of Children and Families – Division of Women.
