Aberdeen Cares to Help Elderly, Infirm

The Daily Record published a story Friday morning about Aberdeen Cares, a new community service program sponsored by the Township to help elderly and infirm residents with chores like mowing lawns, cleaning gutters, and food shopping. The Township's press release says the idea came to the Council after the Mayor asked for residents to help their neighbors with snow shoveling this winter.

There's plenty of need for such volunteer work in our community. The First Presbyterian Church of Matawan has been helping the needy in the region with painting, yard jobs, etc, for what will be nine years this June with its Mission Matawan program, but it is only one week a year and the need is great. It's wonderful that the Township is getting involved.
