Spectrum for Living Receives $10,000 Major Grant from The Provident Bank Foundation
RIVER VALE, NJ (May 4, 2020) – Spectrum for Living, one of New Jersey’s largest disabilities services providers, today announced that it has been awarded a Major Grant in the amount of $10,000 from The Provident Bank Foundation to support the agency’s Edison Group Home Kitchen Renovations project.
Spectrum for Living was selected to receive the grant based upon its demonstrated need for renovations to the kitchens of its two Edison group homes. The agency aims to ensure that its residents’ living experience is both comfortable and enjoyable. A kitchen is an integral component of any home and is where families come together to spend time with one another. The newly renovated kitchens will benefit not only the residents but will also benefit agency staff, who take care of and prepare meals for the residents in the homes on a daily basis.
“We are very much appreciative of The Provident Bank Foundation’s generous $10,000 grant,” said Christopher Perry, President & CEO of Spectrum for Living. “This grant will go a long way towards improving the living conditions at our Edison group homes, and we are pleased to know that The Provident Bank Foundation buys strongly into our belief that disabled persons should be afforded the opportunity to enjoy the full richness that life has to offer.”
“We are pleased to help further valuable initiatives put forth by local organizations who are working every day to strengthen the lives of residents in our communities,” said Samantha Plotino, Executive Director, The Provident Bank Foundation. “We will continue to provide support to these important organizations that have identified an immediate need in the community and for the individuals they serve.”
