Josephine MauroJosephine Mauro Supports "Her Family's Hospital"
Josephine Mauro is extremely proud of her family's 100-year history in Guttenberg and their strong ties to communities throughout Hudson and Bergen Counties.

She fondly recalls how her father Antonio started the North Hudson Beverage Company and how her mother Elisa knitted the town's first sweater to honor the American soldiers who were risking their lives during World War I. She also remembers ice-skating on the lake at Hudson County Park — the same lake that her nephew, Robert Petrolino, enjoyed fishing at every morning before school.

Today, Josephine takes great pride in supporting "her family's hospital" through generous donations to the HackensackUMC Palisades Foundation. A special plaque currently hangs inside one of the hospital's elevators to commemorate Josephine's late parents and to recognize her strong philanthropic efforts as a member of our Founders Society.

"HackensackUMC Palisades and the Harborage will always have a special place in my heart," said Josephine. "The doctors, nurses and aides always went out of their way to provide my family with the best care possible. I never had anything to worry about when they were here, and I sincerely thank Ed Davis (Harborage Administrator), Dr. Maurizio Miglietta and Dr. Samir Amin for everything they have done for my family. I also give special thanks to our good family friend Arthur E. Imperatore for his caring support and for his hard work in bringing HackensackUMC Palisades to our community 30 years ago."

Josephine also helps Palisades by encouraging others to support the Foundation. "The Foundation staff do an excellent job of making donors feel appreciated," said Josephine. "I always tell people to make a donation – no matter how large or small – to help others in need. That's why I am happy that our family plaque has been placed in a highly-visible area to inspire others to give."
