$6,000 Grant for Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey

SHORT HILLS, New Jersey – Seniors at Lutheran Crossings Enhanced Living of Moorestown, a part of Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey (LSMNJ), will be enjoying a new and improved hair salon experience, thanks in part to combined grants of $6,000 from the Investors Bank Foundation and Roma Bank Community Foundation.

Lutheran Crossings Enhanced Living offers assisted living residences, one-room studios, and two-room suites for seniors who prefer to live independently, but may require assistance with daily life activities. The Moorestown campus also provides a 201-bed skilled nursing care facility which offers such specialized services as Alzheimer’s/dementia care, respite care, rehabilitation, and long-term care.

“Our hair salon really needs a facelift,” explained Colleen Frankenfield, President & CEO, LSMNJ. “It is so important to our ladies that they be able to have their hair washed and styled. Even though it is such a simple thing, it means so much to them and really gives them a lift.”

LSMNJ applied for the grants from the Investors Bank Foundation and Roma Bank Community Foundation; Roma Bank became part of Investors Bank in December 2013. The foundations support non-profit organizations that enrich diverse communities served by Investors Bank.

“Sometimes it is the little things that can make the greatest difference in how someone feels,” said Andrea Bondy, Assistant Vice President, Branch Manager – Vincentown. “The Roma Bank Community Foundation is proud to be able to assist Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey in helping the ladies of the Moorestown campus of Lutheran Crossings Enhanced Living take pride in their appearance.”

Lutheran Crossings Enhanced Living is located on a 12-acre campus on Main Street in Moorestown’s historic district.

“Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey has been providing quality care to seniors in Moorestown since 1947,” said Carol-Anne Peacock, Investors Bank Assistant Vice President, Branch Manager – Maple Shade. “Investors Bank recognizes the valuable role the organization plays in the community and wanted to support its on-going mission.
