“We are fortunate to be partnering for a fifth time with the American Cancer Society for their Relay for Life event in Cinnaminson,” says Singleton, who represents the town as part of the 7th Legislative District. "Cancer is a disease that affects so many individuals and families each year, so it is an honor to lend a helping hand once again to this organization which tirelessly dedicates their time and resources to find a cure.”
The Relay for Life service project will be the Senator’s 56th “Serve with Senator Singleton” event since becoming State Senator in 2018. Previous volunteer efforts include: indoor and outdoor clean-up days, animal welfare projects, clothing and supply drives, painting projects, gleaning efforts, and community event set-up and staffing. To date, more than 2,200 hours have been donated by volunteers to local community service projects.
