Monmouth Medical Center (MMC) presented a ceremonial check representing a $20,000 donation to Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County during a January 8 ceremony at the hospital.
This is not the first partnership for Monmouth Medical Center and Habitat for Humanity – Monmouth County. MMC has supported and continues to help in the building of three new homes in Monmouth County. An affordable two family home was completed in Atlantic Highlands in the spring of 2018. Two three bedroom/one bathroom homes are also being built in the Troutman’s Creek neighborhood of Long Branch.
“To expand our community reach, we partner with other organizations, like Habitat for Humanity, to bring about positive change,” said Monmouth Medical Center President and CEO Bill Arnold. “It is a commitment that is directly aligned with RWJBarnabas Health’s Social Impact and Community Investment Practice where a collective impact approach is a key driver of our mission to address the social, economic and environmental conditions that contribute to poor health outcomes, reduced life expectancy and higher costs. “
“We are very grateful for our continued partnership with Monmouth Medical Center,” said Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County’s Executive Director Diane Kinnane. “They have been instrumental in our mission to build strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter in our community and this generous donation will go directly towards helping families live safely and affordably.”
