Philanthropy is about much more than just giving money. It’s about the deep heart connections and communities made stronger during the act of giving of any kind – time, energy, talent, resources, information or financial support. We have always known this at Arbor Terrace Morris Plains, which is why we continue to make a large investment in our local Morris County Chamber of Commerce, through participation with the Health and Wellness Committee and Legacy Philanthropy Project.
