Our Harrison Strong Spirit

Over the past year, our Harrison Strong spirit has shown itself in a variety of ways, rising in our neighborhoods and community organizations too.

To Our Harrison Family,

Our Harrison Strong spirit has shown itself in various ways over the past year and we are all very proud of how our community has met the challenge of this pandemic. From our frontline healthcare workers and our police, fire, and essential municipal workers to our businesses charged with providing the goods and services we need to live, we have been inspired by the drive and resilience exhibited. The Harrison Strong attitude has risen in our neighborhoods and community organizations too.

On that front, Mount Calvary Baptist Church kicked off a Day of Service campaign on MLK Day in January that has morphed into a monthly event since. Seeing the need for the basic sustenance of food, clothing and shelter, the church focused their energy on feeding families in the area through a Community Outreach program.

Their March Day of Service is slated for Saturday, the 20th, from 2-4 PM at Mount Calvary Baptist Church at 44 High Street in Mullica Hill. Gift cards to local eateries will be distributed. If you, or anyone you know, is in need, please complete the survey by Wednesday, March 17th. This is important since it identifies how many people will be served at the drive-thru event on the 20th.

The Harrison Strong spirit is also clearly present in our schools. Teachers and staff in our local school systems have risen to the occasion in facing unprecedented obstacles in educating the community’s youth. They are awesome! Earlier this week, I sat down with the Superintendent of the Harrison Township School District, Dr. Missy Peretti, to discuss how the year has progressed and some important news about the future. Take a few minutes (28 actually) to view my interview with Dr. Missy Peretti.

Together for Harrison Township,

Your Mayor
