Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan North America & Shree Swaminarayan Temple - Secaucus, New Jersey, wanted to show gratitude and give appreciation to the heroes, who have been working the front lines during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. During this time of heightened crisis, Secaucus temple volunteers delivered warm, freshly prepared meals to hospitals, police, EMS, and fire departments in high-impact areas throughout Hudson County and Bergen County, New Jersey, on Thursday, April 23rd, 2020. The temple also wanted to support a local Secaucus small business during these difficult times in our area. Using the funds raised from our online donation campaign for COVID-19, we partnered with Natoli’s Italian Deli, located in Secaucus, to prepare meals that met sanitary guidelines suitable for donation directly to front line workers for their afternoon lunch.

All the members of Shree Swaminarayan Temple – Secaucus, New Jersey, want to once again thank all of those fighting the COVID-19 pandemic on the front lines. They are working hard to keep the rest of us safe, while risking their own safety. We appreciate all that they are doing and pray to Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and Acharya Swamishree Maharaj for their safety and well-being during these times.
