BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - A Room to Heal is once again taking on a project to help another non-profit in our community.
The group, with the help of SEFCU, is creating a calming sensory room for Community Options New York.
Community Options provides supports and services to about 500 people with developmental, intellectual and other disabilities in the Binghamton area.
Today, volunteers began outfitting a small room in their State Street offices with an optic carpet, optic ropes, a bubble tube, mirrors and a projector.
Executive Director Amanda Rick says the room will be a welcome break for clients from the stress of daily activities.
"We've been wanting to do this for many years but we never really had the room available. Once we had the room available, we were pushing forward. And it just so happened that we put in for this at the same time that we were getting ready to do it ourselves," said Rick.
SEFCU provided the funding for the items purchased for the room and Filbin Painting prepped the room for its renovation.
This is A Room To Heal's 10th community project.
Others included rooms at Wilson and Lourdes hospitals and the Family and Children's Society.
