SUMMIT, NJ - As part of a company-held program to support the local community, employees from the Celgene Global Quality Systems and Compliance team took part in a service project to benefit SAGE Eldercare, making 20 fleece blankets to be distributed to SAGE’s older adult clients.
“Celgene employees have a great passion for patients, but they also direct their passion towards the communities where we work and live," said Maria H. Brown, Executive Director, Global Quality Systems and Compliance. "The project we completed for SAGE not only helped us give back to the community, but it also helped to bring us closer together as a team. It was truly a rewarding experience in so many ways."
Angela Sullivan, SAGE Eldercare Executive Director, said, “We are very appreciative of the time and thoughtfulness the team from Celgene generously gave to SAGE. The blankets are beautiful and will be enjoyed by our clients who truly need them.”
SAGE Eldercare has, since 1954, been focused on "helping to make the communities it serves amazing places to age." The organization provides a wide array of information, support, and services designed to help individuals lead the most independent and active lives possible, from helping with errands, to exercise classes, community programs, care planning, and home health care.
SAGE Eldercare is located at 290 Broad Street.
