River Vale, NJ – Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ believes that “generosity is a gift of the Spirit” and it is with that belief that they extended a helping hand to New Concepts for Living through their Grace-Full Dollars program. This program not only exemplifies their generosity and kindness but also highlights their dedication to supporting local service organizations. The donations gathered through the Grace-Full Dollars program are matched through Holy Trinity’s Future Benevolence Fund.
Lynn Ackerman, a member of Holy Trinity, recommended New Concepts for Living (NCFL) as a deserving donation recipient from the Grace-Full Dollars program. This heartfelt recommendation is deeply rooted in the connection Lynn shares with NCFL, particularly through her daughter, Jenny, who resides at one of NCFL’s River Vale Community Residences.
In a touching gesture of support, Reverend Susan Nelson-Colaneri, Pastor at Holy Trinity, visited the residence to personally present a generous check of $904 along with some gifts for the all of the residents. This financial contribution will assist in purchasing essential items for the home and facilitating activities and outings for the home’s six residents and their dedicated Direct Support Professionals (DSPs).
New Concepts for Living extends its heartfelt gratitude to Holy Trinity for their compassionate and considerate contribution, recognizing the immense impact it will have in enriching the lives of the adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
