LINDEN, NJ - Governor Christie will join The Ammon Foundation for the ribbon cutting of its new headquarters on South Wood Avenue.
The Ammon Foundation’s new headquarters represents a strategic investment and a crucial piece of the solution to tackle the New Jersey’s continuing statewide opioid crisis. Through a holistic approach to recovery focused on continuing education and empowerment, the Foundation gives those in recovery the tools to live a self-directed life and reach their full potential. The space will allow the Foundation to administer their two core programs centered around providing individuals with the tools and financial means to attend and graduate college - The Ammon Foundation Empowerment Workshop Series and The Ammon Foundation Scholarship Program.
The Ammon Foundation launched in March 2017 as a philanthropic endeavor of Ammon Labs. Its mission is to provide strategic support to remove barriers for those in addiction recovery seeking to continue their education.
To date, the Ammon Foundation has awarded more than $30,000 in academic scholarships to individuals in addiction recovery to pursue or advance their education.
Governor Christie will also be on hand to help the Ammon Foundation present a scholarship to a recovery recipient. Also in attendance will be the following:
- Raymond J. Lesniak, NJ Senate, 20th Legislative District
- Jamel C. Holley, NJ General Assembly, 20th Legislative District
- Derek Armstead, Mayor, City of Linden
- Dave Hart, Linden Police Department
- Joseph Dooley, Linden Fire Department
The event will take place on January 4, 2018, at the Ammon Foundation Headquarters located at 1622 South Wood Avenue, Linden.
