Provident Bank Foundation presents $20,000 to Red Mill for STEM education


CLINTON – The Provident Bank Foundation, which supports organizations dedicated to improving the lives of residents in communities served by Provident Bank, has provided a grant for$20,000 to the Red Mill Museum Village, the recipient of the Foundation’s “Impact” Grant for Hunterdon County.
The Red Mill offers ongoing educational and outreach programs designed to preserve, maintain and present to the public the social, agricultural and industrial heritage of Hunterdon County and its surrounding area.
“We are honored and very grateful to The Provident Bank Foundation for selecting us to receive the Hunterdon County Impact Grant, which will help us take our educational programming to the next level,” said Eileen K. Morales, executive director of The Red Mill Museum Village.
The museum was selected to receive the grant to fund the development of new, hands-on, interactive programs for the benefit of the thousands of school children (K-12) who visit the facility on school field trips throughout the year. The new programs will specifically incorporate elements of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) school curricula by focusing on the industries that historically once operated on site – milling and quarrying.
“We are proud to support the Red Mill Museum Village in its new initiatives that will provide unique STEM-related learning opportunities to thousands of children from Hunterdon County and the region,” said Jane Kurek, executive director of The Provident Bank Foundation. “Red Mill has stood out as a pillar of community enrichment for years and we look forward to hearing about the wonderful experiences that come as a result of this grant.”
