LIFETOWN IS ‘ON THE AIR’!
LifeTown took center stage last week as veteran New Jersey media personality Steve Adubato highlighted the Friendship Circle and LifeTown on his “On the Air” TV news program, as part of a special “Making a Difference” week of programming.
Adubato and his crew spent a recent Sunday morning at LifeTown where they saw firsthand all the amazing programming that will be available in the coming months. The nearly 8-minute long profile on LifeTown includes an interview with Toba and Rabbi Zalman Grossbaum, LifeTown’s Executive Director and CEO. The Grossbaums discussed the importance of LifeTown, particularly for young adults who are heading out of school and into the next phase of their lives. The also noted that Essex County is the epicenter of the autism epidemic as New Jersey has the highest concentration of children with autism nationwide. Adubato noted that LifeTown was an award recipient of the Russell Berrie Foundation. The broadcast also included interviews with Dr. Bruce Ettinger of Spectrum 360 and Dr. Barbara Listhaus, who has an adult son with special needs and who has been helping to create the adult programming component of LifeTown.
