MOORESTOWN, NJ- In time for “National Senior Independence Month,” Senator Troy Singleton will partner with Bordentown Township for his February community service project. The “Serve with Senator Singleton” event will be held on Saturday, February 2 from 10:00 am-12:00 pm at the Senior Citizens Club located at 3 Municipal Drive in Bordentown Township.
The Senator and a group of volunteers will help to clean the center from floor to ceiling and will be involved with a variety of tasks such as cleaning the great room, kitchen, and other facilities. Anyone interested in volunteering can sign-up on the Senator’s website: https://www.senatorsingleton.com/senior_citizens_club
“February is National Senior Independence Month. Independence is taught to us by our parents when we are young, and it is something we strive to maintain throughout our lives, especially as we get older,” said Senator Singleton. “Key to this is having a place, like the Bordentown Senior Citizens Club, where seniors have access to recreational opportunities and can spend time with their peers. It is someplace where they can donate their time and focus their talents on volunteer projects that benefit the community, and this is a small way we can show our gratitude and return the favor.”
The Senior Citizens Club of Bordentown Township, formed in 1997, serves approximately 300 senior citizens in the community. Run by the Township, it helps to provide local seniors with a place where they can volunteer, socialize, play bingo, craft and hobby, or hold meetings. It is also their hub for community outreach as the center runs 10 outreach projects each year.
This event will be the Senator’s 14th “Serve with Singleton” community service project. Previous volunteer efforts included: painting the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store, Community Options homes, and the Roebling VFW; clean-up days at Jacob’s Chapel Ministry Center, Strawbridge Lake, and Providence House; supply drives for UIH Family Partners and Tabernacle Baptist Church; lunch duty at the Beverly United Methodist summer program; setting-up Cinnaminson’s Relay for Life; building animal shelters with HousePaws; and, volunteering at the Extended Hands Ministries homeless shelter.
