The Chelsea at East Brunswick, in collaboration with BrightStar Care of Northern Middlesex County, presented 160 gift bags containing $10 Target gift cards and other items to Aldersgate United Methodist Church for distribution to their network of low-income seniors.

“We had a tremendous response from local businesses who donated the gift cards,” Cynthia Rozenberg, executive director of The Chelsea at East Brunswick, said in a prepared statement. “A total of 173 gift cards were collected. We also placed hand sanitizers, toiletries and candy in the bags.”

Chelsea employees gathered the gift cards and other items and residents stocked the bags. On Dec. 11, the bags were delivered to Aldersgate Church which administers East Brunswick’s food bank. The church then distributed the bags to those registered with the food bank and others living in low-income housing. In addition to the 160 bags, 13 additional Target gift cards were also donated to the church.

“I appreciate all the work and kindness that went into this project,” Reeta Aggarwal, owner/president of the Brightstar Care Northern Middlesex County office, said in the statement. “It’s all about making seniors’ lives a little brighter at this time of year.”
