September Cover Story-Caring for Those Who Cared For Us

maureen-colier-seniro-building-cover-sept.JPGHudson County Office On Aging- River View Observer

By Tom Dwyer
            With a budget of ten million dollars, Edward Benoit, the Executive Director of the Hudson County Office on Aging (HCOA), has learned to stretch a buck.  With a staff of ten employees, he oversees an agency that is currently assisting over 20,000 Hudson County senior citizens every year.  The sobering fact is that Hudson County has the highest percentage of senior poverty in the state of New Jersey.  But Ed Benoit, who has been the director of the HCOA for over two years, has big plans for the future. “My agency wants to reach out to as many seniors as possible and help them in every way that we can. We offer a number of community-based services including legal services, protective services, nutrition programs, Meals-on-Wheels, dental programs and housing.”  That’s why Benoit and senours-at-computers-sept-cover-rvo.JPGhis staff are about to kick off a marketing blitz to reach out to seniors in Hudson County to let them know more about programs available to them. Using flyers, meetings, focus groups, a new website and booklet, Benoit is determined to reach all who need assistance.  He is also targeting those who help take care of seniors.   “There are many caregivers who are taking care of a family member, friend or neighbor. We want to let them know that there are services available for them as well.”

River View Observer asks?-Will Hudson County Residents Drink NYC Bottled Water?

Their Marketing information has the tag line:

 No Glaciers Were Harmed Making This  Water or Not From The Top Of Some Far Away Mountain and The Anti-Bottle Water, Bottled Water

tapped1.bmp

If you havent figured it out already, this marketing information is from a company selling bottled water but just not any water –NYC tap waterThe company Tap’d NY .Their tap’d NY Manifesto for the New  Age states…Year after year, bottled water companies have told us that their water was somehow healthier or better for us than our own water. They spent billions of dollars on marketing to make us believe that we needed exotic water, in sleek packaging, from far away Arctic glaciers, tropical islands, and European volcanoes. We fell for the fancy marketing gimmicks, too, and the brands we drank started to become status symbols. But we’re New Yorkers and are ready for an honest change.  It’s time for a better way of thinking, er, drinking: A Tap’dNY Manifesto for the new age.
