State Sen. Troy Singleton’s office announced it will partner with the Deborah Heart and Lung Center for his February community service project. The monthly “Serve with Senator Singleton” event will be held Feb. 17 at Deborah, 200 Trenton Road, Browns Mills.

Singleton (D-Moorestown), Assemblywoman Andrea Katz (D-Burlington County) and a group of volunteers will help perform various tasks around the hospital.

“With February being ‘American Heart Month,’ there is no better partner for a community service project than Deborah Heart and Lung Center,” Singleton said. “Deborah’s mission to provide accessible cardiovascular care and inclusive medical services is exemplary, and it is our pleasure to give back to this organization with our time and service, while raising awareness for heart disease prevention.”

“I’m honored to serve our community alongside Sen. Singleton at the Deborah Heart and Lung Center. We are fortunate to have great health care providers in Burlington County and I am thankful that our families have access to these lifesaving services,” Katz said.

“Community volunteerism isn’t just about giving back; it’s about building bridges, fostering empathy and igniting positive change. Having two representatives giving back is a great asset within our community,” Joseph Chirichella, CEO and president, Deborah Heart and Lung Center, said.

Each month, Singleton crowd-sources a team of volunteers to help with a particular community service project. This event will be the senator’s 60th “Serve with Senator Singleton” event since becoming state senator in 2018. Previous volunteer efforts include: indoor and outdoor cleanup days, animal welfare projects, clothing and supply drives, painting projects, gleaning efforts and community event setup and staffing. To date, more than 2,400 hours have been donated by volunteers to local community service projects.

Deborah is the only hospital that treats adults and children that does not balance bill patients for care provided at the hospital. “There is no price on life” is more than a founding motto at Deborah, it is a philanthropic philosophy that has been practiced for more than 100 years and is a shining example of Medical Debt Relief in action.
