“Thanks to our collective efforts and community-based partnerships, hundreds of children will have a new winter coat,” said Senator Singleton. “It is vitally important that we do all that we can to ensure that children in Burlington County have the tools they need to succeed and thrive, and that includes having a coat that will keep them warm on their way to school. I want to thank all of our amazing partners for sharing and valuing this commitment and I encourage parents to sign up today for a new coat.”
“We all know how unpredictable winter weather can be in New Jersey and the Northeast, making a warm winter coat an absolute necessity for all our residents,” said Burlington County Commissioner Director Felicia Hopson. “We also know that purchasing adequate winter outerwear can be a financial hardship for some families, so we’re grateful that Senator Singleton and his staff are organizing this coat giveaway. It couldn’t come at a more opportune time and our County is happy to assist.”
The Senator worked with local non-profits and school districts to help pre-register and identify children who may be in need of a winter coat.
Senator Singleton has made community service an integral component of his time in office. Each month, the Senator hosts a “Serve with Senator Singleton” event where he crowd-sources a team of volunteers to help with a certain project. To date, he has held nearly 60 of these events, resulting in more than 2,300 hours being donated by volunteers to local community service projects. Additionally, the Senator initiates many other community outreach efforts such as supply drives, annual back-to-school haircut events, reading challenges, food distributions, and more.
