BURLINGTON, NJ – For his August “Serve with Senator Singleton” event, State Senator Troy Singleton will partner with Tabernacle Baptist Church in Burlington to volunteer at its “Kick Back with a Backpack” back-to-school supply drive.
With the help of Tabernacle Baptist Church’s Mission Ministry, the Senator and volunteers will organize donated school supplies and then proceed to fill backpacks, which will be distributed to area children before the start of the school year. The event will take place at Tabernacle Baptist Church, 150 East 2nd Street in Burlington on Saturday, August 18 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Anyone interested in attending can RSVP here: http://www.senatorsingleton.com/back_to_school_supply_drive
“It is truly a privilege to partner with Tabernacle Baptist Church for our August service event,” said Singleton, who represents Burlington as part of the 7th Legislative District. “We are thrilled to volunteer our time and services with a purposeful, passionate group to ensure that the children of Burlington and surrounding communities have the resources they need to succeed in the upcoming school year.”
Additionally, if anyone would like to donate school supplies, they can drop them off at Senator Troy Singleton’s office at 400 North Church Street, Suite 260 in Moorestown between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Needed supplies include: backpacks, binders, folders, notebooks, index cards, pens, pencils, glue sticks, rulers, pencils, pencil cases, crayons, highlighters, markers, and erasers. Supplies can be dropped off until Friday, August 17.
This is Senator Singleton’s 8th “Serve with Singleton” event since he became a State Senator in January 2018.

In addition to the school supply drive, their Missionary Ministry supports programs such as the Clothing Ministry, the Dooley House, Missionaries on the Foreign Field, and Nursing Home Visits to spread their message as well as accomplish their goals.
