Glen Rock Is Never Surrendering (GRINS)
The group "Glen Rock is Never Surrendering" (GRINS)  was created to support Bergen County hospitals during the COVID-19 crisis. The primary goal is to deliver meals daily to hospitals, working with local restaurants.  GRINS has been collecting money from people in town and using it to buy the meals, supporting both local eateries and healthcare workers.  Employees at HUMC lost their cafeteria to make room for more beds for COVID-19 patients. If you would like to participate, please check out the group's Facebook page for contacts and information.  THANK YOU!
 
See our special COVID-19 Resource Page for information about how the GRJC is responding to this unprecedented challenge and ways you can help.
