Mental Health Association of Monmouth County to Honor Manasquan Bank at Annual Golf Classic
Atlantic Highlands, NJ (March 8, 2023) – In recognition of their commitment to our local community, the Mental Health Association of Monmouth County (MHAMC) is pleased to honor Manasquan Bank at the organization’s annual Golf Classic & Cocktail Party on Monday, May 15th at Beacon Hill Country Club in Atlantic Highlands.
“Manasquan Bank is pleased and proud to support the mission and continuing efforts of the Mental Health Association of Monmouth County,” states President & CEO James S. Vaccaro. “Our focus has always been a community-oriented mindset motivated to support the areas we serve. Manasquan Bank recognizes and applauds the wonderful work performed by MHA. The Manasquan Bank Charitable Foundation remains committed to assist those not-for-profit organizations who fill otherwise unmet societal needs.”
MHAMC’s Golf Outing will feature a fun yet challenging tournament on Beacon Hill Country Club’s scenic course with beautiful views of the New York City skyline, followed by cocktails and dinner in the recently renovated clubhouse. Reservations may be made for the full Golf Outing, or non-golfing guests may choose to attend the evening Cocktail Party only.
The Mental Health Association of Monmouth County, founded in 1950, has established itself as a leader in local communities and statewide in providing extensive suicide prevention programs, mental health services in schools, homeless outreach, case management and other intensive family support services. MHAMC utilizes a multi-layered approach, combining individual and group counseling with prevention programs that focus on assisting individuals with accessing critical social supports in their communities, including permanent housing, financial assistance, and linkages to food and medical care. MHAMC offers help to individuals and families in addressing all these issues knowing that, if someone struggles in any of these areas, their mental health and ability to achieve wellness becomes compromised.
Through its charitable foundation, established in 2014, Manasquan Bank has embedded itself in the Monmouth, Ocean, and Middlesex County communities by supporting local non-profits both financially and through onsite support. As one of its beneficiaries, MHA of Monmouth can attest to the tremendous impact of these grants. “Manasquan Bank has helped sustain our agency through its financial support,” reflects Wendy DePedro, President & CEO of the Mental Health Association of Monmouth County. “We are so grateful to Manasquan Bank and Jim Vaccaro for their generosity to MHA and so many others.”
Under the leadership and example of CEO James S. Vaccaro, the bank also strongly encourages its employees to become actively involved in the local community. Bank employees may volunteer up to 15 hours per year, as the bank’s CREW Cares program provides onsite volunteer support to community organizations.
