More for Matheny

Chairs: Grace Scali

 

Matheny is a special hospital and learning center for children and adults with medically complex developmental disabilities and has a comprehensive outpatient center meeting the health care needs of people with all types of disabilities in the community. We primarily volunteer weekly on Sundays from 1-3 PM at a Matheny group home in Basking Ridge, however, there are also opportunities at the main campus in Peapack. This year we are focusing on donating items to the group home in addition to weekly volunteer sessions in small groups of three to five students. To become a volunteer, you must receive an orientation at the main campus that we will coordinate. If you wish to volunteer in the winter, you will need proof of a flu shot. Please contact us (180030@whrhs-stu.org or 182220@whrhs-stu.org) if you are interested!


Our mission: To volunteer alongside the patients at Matheny to enhance their experience at the center/group home in any way we can.


Important dates: Orientations are required for volunteers and will be scheduled as soon as we have a complete list of members interested in participating. Expect orientations to take place in mid-late October and early-mid November. Also, proof of flu vaccination is needed by November 1st.
