Valley National Bank Donates $5,000 To Making-It-Home Organization In Support Of The Emerson Veterans Project

WAYNE, N.J. - Thursday, August 3, 2017 - Valley National Bank is proud to donate $5,000 to the Making-It-Home Organization in support of the Emerson Veterans Project.

Making-It-Home is a public/private partnership that works with companies and nonprofits to bring home furnishings to people in need, including victims of natural disasters, people with disabilities, veterans and military families, senior citizens and those whose homes have been built or repaired by nonprofit organizations such as Rebuilding Together, United Way and Habitat for Humanity.

Emerson Veterans Project aims to teach high school and middle school students as well as members of the community about the meaning of conflict and the effects of war on real people's lives. Through personal interviews with veterans of foreign wars and development of instructional activities, middle and high school students will gain essential knowledge, skills and appreciation for the significance of history and our veterans. The interviews help create a framework for developing teaching materials throughout the region and to give the veterans they interview a chance to share memories about their time in service.
