Pennies can be like raindrops. One or two don't mean much, but when you get a lot, things begin to grow.

His donation is part of a school supply donation program taking place at RWJ Rahway. Drop off your school supplies to the medical library by August 15. Area students will appreciate them!

A patient wrote this of CNA Charles Daly: "Mr. Charles Daly is a very beautiful person on the inside just as much as the outside...He takes his job to heart. Whoever gets him as their CNA won't have anything to worry about. He makes his rounds to let you know, 'I'm Charles and I am your CNA for today. Anything that I can do for you, I will.' But not only that, if a co-worker needs any kind of help, he is there. He is great."
