“Burlington Island is a natural treasure in our legislative district, and I am excited to bring our team of volunteers out there to help with conservation efforts,” said Senator Singleton. “Our goal through our ‘Serve with Senator Singleton’ events is to expose volunteers to different community organizations, and to work in partnership with those groups to provide helping hands where they are needed the most.”
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 55th “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.
