LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Livingston Sunrise Rotary Club recently presented a donation to Rabbi Zalman Grossbaum of LifeTown, a 53,000-square-foot center that will cater to the needs of all children, teens and adults.
 
LifeTown, located at 10 Microlab Rd. in Livingston, hopes to redefine the landscape for individuals with special needs. Complete with recreational, therapeutic and educational facilities, the center is the first of its kind in the region, offering “real-world scenarios in a safe and controlled environment,” according to the Sunrise Rotary.
 
LifeTown's focal point is "Life Village," a simulated Main Street meant to empower individuals reach their full potential and help prepare participants with special needs for independent living.
 
The Livingston Sunrise Rotary Club is a civic organization that meets every Tuesday at 7:45 a.m. at Eppes Essen. The club’s goal is to assist those in need in our community and promote peace locally and internationally. For more information, contact Monte Ehrenkranz at 973-716-0600.
