Point Pleasant, N.J., Skilled Nursing Facility’s Efforts Part of its Community Support and Outreach
POINT PLEASANT, N.J., May 19, 2021 – Crest Pointe Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Point Pleasant recently partnered with Mary’s Table, a ministry of St. Mary’s by the Sea Episcopal Church, to help in feeding more than 300 local residents in need. The efforts are part of the skilled nursing facility’s extensive community support and outreach efforts. Pictured (L-R) are Crest Pointe’s Kim Giovanni, director of food service, and Alyshia Worthington; Mary’s Table volunteers Laurie Clayton, Kathy Lyon, Marie Lucier Woodruff and Robin Henry; and Pam Montemurno, regional director of market development at Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports Crest Pointe.
Through the generosity and assistance of area businesses and volunteers, Mary’s Table each week provides free hot meals to hundreds of housebound area residents and those facing food insecurity. Due to COVID-19, the organization shifted from in-person meals at the church to home delivery. Crest Pointe’s recent donation included multiple trays of homemade food; the facility also donated a refrigerator to the organization last year.
“Mary’s Table and Crest Pointe have a shared spirit of compassion and caring for the Point Pleasant community,” said Montemurno. “Mary’s Table has served as a lifeline for many in the area, particularly during the pandemic. Week in and week out, their dedicated volunteers are doing incredible work, from packaging meals to delivering food to those in need and so much more. It’s humbling to see in action.”
Mary’s Table is in need of volunteers, including drivers, and monetary donations are appreciated. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more and mail donations to Mary’s Table at 804 Bay Avenue, Point Pleasant Beach, N.J. 08742.
