Special Olympics New Jersey donates games to Eden’s residences

The residents of Eden’s group homes now have a few more games to play thanks to Special Olympics New Jersey.

Special Olympics New Jersey recently donated a variety of games to Eden’s group homes and apartments to help residents stay active as they continue to spend more time at home. The games included basketball and soccer equipment, ping pong, a bowling set, corn hole and pickleball.

As many in-person games and activities had to be shut down as a precaution against the coronavirus, Special Olympics New Jersey has shifted to virtual programming for its athletes. However, Special Olympics New Jersey officials wanted to provide additional ways for the men and women in group homes across the state to remain active.

We are excited to add these games to our residential activities to help the men and women we support continue to enjoy their time at home.

Joanne Monaco, SONJ Senior Field Services Manager, delivered the games to Eden’s Crossroads location. Pictured collecting the games are Patrick Jackson, Administrative Assistant – Adult Services, Bridgette Connolly, Director of Employment and Day Services, and Dr. Rachel Tait, Chief Program Officer.
