“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 they have sacrificed for us,” said Sen. Singleton, who represents 17 towns in the county. of Burlington. “As we celebrate and honor all of the men and women who have served our nation in the United States military, this is an opportunity for us to collectively reflect and thank our veterans for their service.”

VFW is the nation’s largest veterans organization 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 recruits 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 a state senator in 2018. Past volunteer efforts include: indoor and outdoor cleanup days, animal protection, clothing and supplies, painting projects and organizing community and personal events. To date, over 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 to live on this earth. These monthly community service events have been a priority for me during my first term as a state senator and they will continue to be. They brought together people of different backgrounds, ages and perspectives for a common purpose – to be of service to their community,” Singleton continued.
