Teaneck-based Holy Name Medical Center (HNMC) has received a $10,000 donation from the Just Energy Foundation. The funds for the donation are principally to help support the hospital’s programs for students of Sinai Schools in New Jersey. For almost two decades, Holy Name Medical Center has provided one-on-one training opportunities for high school students from Teaneck’s Sinai Schools for Jewish children with physical and developmental challenges. HNMC is the only hospital providing vocational training for Sinai students.
“We’re very excited to see that the positive impact of Holy Name’s partnership with the Sinai Schools has inspired support from our community,” said Michael Maron, President, CEO, Holy Name Medical Center. “We express our gratitude to the Just Energy Foundation for their generous donation, which will benefit the students immensely.”
The hospital is also helping to simplify access to healthcare for adult SINAI graduates who are living in supportive housing. In 2015, Holy Name Medical Center expanded its partnership with Sinai by establishing a scholarship program for tuition assistance so more families in need can afford to send their children to Sinai School.
“We are absolutely delighted to make this donation to Holy Name Medical Center” says Deb Merril, Just Energy’s co-Chief Executive Officer. “Its collaboration with Sinai Schools, in particular, in helping to secure necessary medical and community resources for special needs students, fills a critical gap. This strongly reflects a guiding principle of the Just Energy Foundation to help ensure no one is turned away from the care and support they need and deserve due to financial hardship.”Related Articles:
