Local Nonprofit to receive MINI Electric vehicles for year long Field Trial

Morristown, June 15, 2009: Community Options, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that develops community-based housing and innovative employment opportunities for people with developmental disabilities. Community Options, Inc. is the recipient of 12 donated MINI Electric vehicles to utilize throughout New Jersey as part of a Field Trial for MINI of Morristown.

Community Options will utilize the vehicles throughout their entrepreneurial business across New Jersey and their group homes. The organization became more ecologically responsible back in 2007 when it started the process to go paperless throughout their national operations in addition to utilizing only green cleaning products in all of their group homes and businesses.

Robert Stack, President and CEO of Community Options has dedicated his life’s work to designing the most innovative entrepreneurial business models to train and employ people with disabilities. Robert has created three Daily Plan It Conference and Copy Centers in New Jersey, Vaseful Flowers and Gifts, the country’s only nonprofit flower shop and Presents of Mind, which is an upscale gift store also in New Jersey. Robert has been instrumental in institutional closure across the country, moving people from state institutions into their own homes. “We are thrilled to receive this donation of 12 MINI Electric vehicles to utilize in a year long field trial,” says Stack. “MINI of Morristown has made a great decision in choosing our operation to operate these electric cars as we have the workforce that can put these vehicles to the test and it also demonstrates our organization’s commitment to sustaining the environment,” Stack added.

The organization will be blogging about their MINI E experiences on their blog at To learn more about Community Options and the work they are doing across New Jersey, please visit them at
