Singleton, Volunteers to Clean-Up Willingboro’s Mill Creek Park in Honor of Earth Day
Moorestown, NJ – In honor of Earth Day later this month, State Senator Troy Singleton is partnering with Willingboro Township to host a park clean-up for his April “Serve with Senator Singleton” event. The event will take place at Mill Creek Park, 300 Beverly Rancocas Road, Willingboro on Saturday, April 17th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
The Senator is seeking 20 volunteers to help clean-up the park. Volunteers will be asked to wear facemasks and bring their own work gloves. Trash bags will be provided. Anyone interested in volunteering with the Senator can sign-up here:
“Our ‘Serve with Senator Singleton’ days have proven to be an effective way to crowd-source volunteers to a community project in need of many hands. This month, we are excited to head to my hometown of Willingboro to help clean-up Mill Creek Park to ensure that it remains a beautiful natural treasure for residents of all ages to enjoy,” said Singleton.
The 180-acre Mill Creek Park is referred to as the “Flag Ship” of the Willingboro Municipal Park System. It is the site of many local entertainment, seasonal, and sporting events, and has ample recreational options.
This will be Senator Singleton’s 29th “Serve with Senator Singleton” event since becoming State Senator in 2018. Previous volunteer efforts include: indoor and outdoor clean-up days, animal welfare projects, various clothing and supply drives, painting projects, and community event set-up and staffing. To date, more than 1,000 hours have been donated by volunteers to local community service projects. Since the pandemic, the Senator directed much of his community service focus on addressing food insecurity through food distributions and summertime Food Truck Friday events.
