Christmas in July 2013

The Honor Legion is continuing the tradition of Christmas in July at Hackensack Hospital Joseph Sanzari Children’s Unit.  The NJHL will visit the hospital children’s wing with Santa on July 25th, 2013.  Many organizations visit the hospital during the holiday season and we would like bring some summer cheer to the Children.  Many of the children helped by this program have life threatening illnesses.  Please help us to help brighten the children’s lives at the Hospital.  Toy Donations need to be new and unwrapped – unfortunately due to the risk of contaminating the children, used toys cannot be accepted.  Toy or monetary donations can mailed to:

New Jersey Police Honor Legion
PO Box 185
Wood-Ridge, NJ 07075

If your items need to be picked up please contact 201-852-5921 or email us at toys@njhl.com

As always thank you for your support.

Timothy Sullivan – 2nd Vice President

Project Blue Light

As a reminder, don’t forget project “BLUE LIGHT” this holiday season.  The idea is to display a blue light in one or more of your windows to honor those men and women in Law Enforcement who have given their lives in the performance of their duties and to honor those men and women who continue to work in Law Enforcement, putting their lives on the line every day.

This tradition was started back in 1989 by Mrs. Dolly Craig of Philadelphia, PA, who lost her son in law, Danny Gleason, a Philadelphia Police Officer killed in the line of duty in 1986.  In 1989 Mrs. Craig shared her idea with COPS (Concerns of Police Survivors) and told them that she was honoring her son in law and his wife (who had died in an auto accident earlier in 1989) by placing a blue light in her window.

Because of her idea, a tradition was born.

Please place a blue light in your window this holiday season.

Christmas in July

Dear Honored Citizens and Members,

A few years ago, The New Jersey Honor Legion started a Program where Members of the Honor Legion Executive Board Visited area hospitals and agencies to bring Christmas gifts to children who had illnesses and could not be home for the holidays. I am proud and happy to announce that President Anthony Mattessich and the Honor Legion Executive Board will be starting this program again for 2009. Due to the large amount of police agencies that do visit the hospitals and agencies during the holidays, President Mattessich proposed to start a theme of Christmas in July.

This July, members of the New Jersey Honor Legion Executive Board will focus on the Child Life Department at the Joseph Sanzari Children’s Hospital at the Hackensack University Medical Center. This Center helps children and teens cope with numerous medical illnesses and hospitalization through daily support for in – patients as well as outpatients. This medical service will help take away worries and fears that ill children may have, thus encouraging the same sense of security while in the hospital environment.

The Child Life Department is seeking donations of toys and various items for their pediatric patients. Donations will help the pediatric areas including the pediatric emergency room, intensive care, operating area, as well as the pediatric in-patients units.

Any donations can be sent to:

New Jersey Police Honor Legion Christmas in July Fund
P.O. Box 185
Wood-Ridge, NJ 07075

All funds received will be applied to a list of items needed for the Children’s unit.  Thank you in advance for your participation in this program.
