Valley National Bank Supports Community Options Inc.’s Second Red Ribbon Academy in Hillsborough, New Jersey
WAYNE, N.J. – Tuesday, September 13, 2016 – On September 8th, Community Options Inc. opened its second Red Ribbon Academy, located at 2230 Camplain Road in Hillsborough, New Jersey. The Red Ribbon Academy is a state-of-the-art medical special needs adult day care program with a combination of tender loving care, therapy integration and fun, adapted activities. The program provides quality medical, therapeutic and recreational support to medically fragile adults with developmental disabilities.
Valley National Bank attended the grand opening and supported the new Red Ribbon Academy by providing Community Options with a donation. The funds from this donation are being used to purchase medical equipment that will assist individuals who have the most severe and fragile medical disabilities in a way that fosters growth and progress. Many of these adults have graduated out of school systems and are unable to find an appropriate program, or were denied care due to the severity of their medical needs.
“We are proud to support the essential services and programs that the Red Ribbon Academy provides,” remarked Bernadette Mueller, Executive Vice President at Valley National Bank. “As a community bank, it is our responsibility to assist organizations like Community Options, Inc. in their efforts to empower people with disabilities.”
