Giving back

The Hartford insurance company believes in giving back to the communities in which its employees work and live. Through its Community Service Program, employees are granted eight hours of paid time off to volunteer.

On December 16, four employees from The Hartford’s Rockaway office arrived at Matheny to help make holiday decorations with our adult residents. It was a reunion of sorts as the residents and volunteers recognized each other from a similar event in 2013. The task was to build a giant Santa Claus.

A little help from our friends

A group of employees from the Hartford Insurance Company, located in Florham Park, NJ, recently spent an afternoon crafting holiday decorations with adult patients at Matheny. One of the patients, Kevin White, received a big assist while decorating the tree from Hartford employee Amanda Rafferty.
