Carol Albanese, Executive Director of Opportunity Project presented the 2011 Millburn High School Football Team with a community service award for their “PLAY SMART” project at the 2011 Awards Dinner Program held at the Short Hills Club on December 2, 2011.

The team partnered with Opportunity Project and the United Way of Millburn Short Hills to support brain injury awareness by collecting sports helmets.  The team collected 124 helmets which will be refurbished and distributed to children and teens.  The players created collection boxes and placed them in drop off locations throughout Millburn.  Special thanks go out to High Gear Cyclery and The Garage for serving as collection locations.

“It was a pleasure to work on this project with the Millburn High School Football Team and the Fifth Quarter Club.  This project was such a tremendous success.  These young men played a key role in bringing the community together to raise awareness about brain injury.  We are thrilled to announce that we anticipate continuing this campaign throughout the year” said Carol Albanese.

Opportunity Project is a Clubhouse program in Millburn that empowers people with brain injury through a variety of vocational and social integrated programs.  For more information, visit their website at www.opportunityproject.org.
