Moorestown – State Senator Troy Singleton will partner with the Deborah Heart and Lung Center for his February community service project. The monthly “Serve with Senator Singleton” event will be held on Saturday, February 17th from 10am-12pm at the Deborah Heart and Lung Center, 200 Trenton Rd, Browns Mills, NJ 08015.
The Senator, Assemblywoman Andrea Katz, who represents Browns Mills in the 8th Legislative District, and a group of volunteers will help perform various tasks around the hospital.
“With February being ‘American Heart Month’ there is no better partner for a community service project than Deborah Heart and Lung Center,” said Singleton. “Deborah’s mission to provide accessible cardiovascular care and inclusive medical services is exemplary, and it is our pleasure to give back to this organization with our time and service, while raising awareness for heart disease prevention.”
“I’m honored to serve our community alongside Senator Singleton at the Deborah Heart and Lung Center. We are fortunate to have great healthcare providers in Burlington County and I am thankful that our families have access to these lifesaving services,” said Assemblywoman Katz.
“Community volunteerism isn’t just about giving back; it’s about building bridges, fostering empathy, and igniting positive change. Having two representatives giving back is a great asset within our community,” said Joseph Chirichella, President and CEO, Deborah Heart and Lung Center.
Each month, Senator Singleton crowd-sources a team of volunteers to help with a particular community service project. This event will be the Senator’s 60th “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 2,400 hours have been donated by volunteers to local community service projects.
