SENATOR TROY SINGLETON TO PARTNER WITH DELRAN VFW FOR NOVEMBER COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECT

DELRAN, NJ – In honor of Veteran’s Day, State Senator Troy Singleton will partner with Veterans of Foreign War Post #3020 for his monthly community service project. The “Serve with Senator Singleton” event will take place on Saturday, November 20 at 11:00 a.m. at VFW Post 3020 located at 1125 S. Fairview Street in Delran.

The Senator, who previously served as Chairman of the Senate Military and Veterans Affairs Committee, and a group of volunteers will complete various tasks at the VFW over the course of two hours. Specifically, volunteers will be asked to help with various indoor and outdoor clean-up activities including raking, organizing the garage/ shed, and cleaning indoors. Anyone interested in volunteering can sign-up on the Senator’s website:

“November is the perfect time to partner with the VFW to give back to our local veterans and show them how much we appreciate all that they sacrificed for us,” said Senator Singleton, who represents 17 towns in Burlington County. “As we celebrate and honor all of the men and women who have served our nation in the U.S. military, this is an opportunity for us to collectively reflect on and thank our veterans for their service.”

The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #3020 in Delran is one of nearly 7,000 VFW posts worldwide. VFW is the nation’s largest organization of war veterans and its oldest major veterans’ organization, with nearly 1.9 million VFW and Auxiliary members. The VFW and its Auxiliaries are dedicated to veterans’ service, legislative advocacy, and military and community service programs.

Each month, Senator Singleton crowd-sources a team of volunteers to help with a particular community service project. The event at the VFW will be the Senator’s 36th “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, and community event set-up and staffing. To date, more than 1,400 hours have been donated by volunteers to local community service projects.

“I am guided by the idea that service is the rent we pay for living on this earth. These monthly community service events have been a priority for me during my first term as State Senator and they will continue to be. They have brought together people of different backgrounds, ages, and perspectives for a common purpose – to be of service to their community,” continued Singleton.
