SUMMIT, NJ - HomeTowne Television®, a nonprofit television channel based in Summit has received two grants from Investors Foundation that will fund a documentary detailing Paper Mill Playhouse's 'Theater for Everyone' program and underwrite the production of a television program that showcases the good works of folks in the community. 

The grant of $3,300 will be used to fund a documentary about Paper Mill Playhouse’s barrier-free access to theater and their 'Theater for Everyone' program, which makes the live theater experience and arts education available to people who are hearing and visually impaired, have autism, or have other physical and learning disabilities who would not ordinarily be able to enjoy a theatrical performance.

The second grant, in the amount of $10,000, will underwrite the production of a series of four, 30-minute  shows spotlighting Investors Bank employees who give back to the communities where they live.

“We are grateful for the generous support of Investors Foundation,” said HomeTowne Television® President John Serruto. “HomeTowne Television® will have the honor of broadcasting the stories of dedicated people who give back to their communities.  In addition, we will be able to spotlight an incredible program that unites talented artists, teachers and technicians who wish to share their love of the theatre with everyone, including people who otherwise might not be able to experience the theatre live.”
