Red Bank, N.J., (December 13, 2017) – Tower Hill First Presbyterian Church at Red Bank has donated $11,800 to HABCORE, Inc. as part of its “Be Rich” program. HABCORE, Inc. is a not-forprofit corporation serving Ocean and Monmouth counties which provides permanent housing and individualized support, helping homeless families, veterans, and individuals with special needs move through crisis to stability, giving them the opportunity to improve their lives.
“On the eve of Thanksgiving, Pastor Jason Tucker and Carol Moser, the Missions Chair of Tower Hill Church, gave us a wonderful surprise, granting HABCORE this extraordinary and most generous donation,” said Steve Heisman, HABCORE’s Executive Director. “Tower Hill Church is truly the epitome of what churches should strive to do for their community, both in volunteering and monetary donations. For over 10 years, the Tower Hill Church members have been vital contributors, committing countless volunteer hours and supporting our growth financially, and for this we are sincerely grateful.”
Funding provided by the Tower Hill Church will be used for needed repairs and operational support for the John Coffey Residence, HABCORE’s boarding home in Red Bank, which is home to 21 individuals with special needs. HABCORE’s boarding homes receive no government funding. They provide meals, housing, and around-the-clock support for each person for under $40 a day, in contrast to the cost of the hospital system which costs approximately $2,000 daily.
“Tower Hill is grateful for HABCORE which provides such a needed service to our local Community,” said Carol Moser. “We have enjoyed partnering with them over the years, both financially and through many volunteer projects. We were thrilled to surprise such a worthy organization with some extra financial support and know that they will put it to good use.”
