Boiling Springs Savings Bank Presents $10,000 Donation to Opioid Overdose Recovery Program

Boiling Springs Savings Bank Presents $10,000 Donation to Opioid Overdose Recovery Program - August 23, 2017

At a recent meeting, the Board of Directors approved a donation to Children’s Aid and Family Services to help them continue their work in the areas of drug prevention and opioid overdose recovery.

 

Boiling Springs Savings Bank recently donated $10,000 to the Children’s Aid and Family Services’ Opioid Overdose Recovery Program. This initiative was launched in May of 2017 by The Center for Alcohol and Drug Resources, a program within Children’s Aid and Family Services. The staff of Recovery Specialists, who are themselves in long-term recovery, provide peer support to survivors of overdoses who have been revived by Narcan (Naloxone) at any of the six Bergen County hospital emergency rooms. In addition, the Recovery Specialists work to guide survivors into treatment and put them in touch with essential support services.

 

“We are very pleased that our Board of Directors authorized management to donate to Children’s Aid and Family Services to help them continue their work in the areas of drug prevention and opioid overdose recovery” stated Robert E Stilwell, President and CEO of Boiling Springs Savings Bank. “The Opioid Overdose Recovery Program is already making an impact on this crisis in Bergen County and Boiling Springs is proud to be a small part of that success.”

 

Children’s Aid and Family Services, a leading nonprofit human services organization serving northern New Jersey, endeavors to provide high quality, innovative services to children and their families that advance social, educational and emotional development and wellbeing. We are honored to support this agency, a member of Boiling Springs’ award winning Community Alliance Program, that has served the community for more than 115 years.
