After a week of back-breaking work in what was one of the toughest weeks in Lakewood Chaveirim’s history, one local business is saying thank you in their own way. The Lakewood Gym, located in the Shoprite plaza on Madison Avenue sponsored an evening of relaxation for all Chaveirim members – by jumping into their pool or hot tub – at any time they choose.
“It’s a beautiful gesture and much appreciated”, a Chaverim board member tells TLS. “It’s these thoughtful things that go a long way and ‘boosts’ the members’ morale”, he says.
Chaveirim responded to over 2,000 – mostly urgent – calls during one of Lakewood’s worst winter storms.
