Shape A Life organized a musical program in association with Musicians and Friends’ Folk Jam Central at Menlo Park Veterans Memorial Home, Edison, NJ on November 23rd, 2019, in which 25 musicians played for our veterans. This was a way to say our heartiest thanks to our veterans who served our country.

Shape A Life is a not for profit organization founded in 2019 by Chetna Goel based out of NJ., whose primary goal is working with the Senior Citizen Nursing Homes to provide vocal performances, volunteers from schools playing board games and celebrating their birthdays. Their other focus is on food distribution to homeless shelters.

Councilwoman Joyce Ship-Freeman of Edison NJ had graced the event by her presence and support. Shape A Life volunteers distributed one hundred scratch lottery tickets during the performance to the veterans.

Our performers equally enjoyed the event. One of our performers wrote: "It was so great seeing everyone again! And so much fun playing for such an appreciative audience. They were singing AND dancing! For people that have given so much of themselves it was a pleasure to be able to give a little something back. Thanks to Shape a Life for asking us to play again" 

“I want to continue with this program on a regular basis in different Senior Nursing homes,” Chetna stated. “I want many more people to know about our program and we request more and more volunteers to come forward and help our seniors who worked so hard to make America a great place for us to live and grow.”  Senior nursing homes and volunteers can reach out to us via email and visit our facebook page
