A Message from Mayor Susan Shin Angulo
Dear Residents:

I know these have been trying times for all of our residents, but please rest assured that Township Council, Town Hall employees, and myself are working around the clock to manage the situation here at home.  
 
We know there is a need for medical protection equipment for front line workers, a need for test kits, and frankly a need for answers. I've been in touch with state officials and members of the Governor’s staff, we've had several calls with Mayors from around the state, and we’ve kept in close contact with Camden County leadership and public health officers to come up with best practices to help mitigate this global pandemic.
 
The Governor announced additional restrictions on personal care businesses such as barber shops, hair and nail salons. We’ve been doing our best to keep track of those and are pushing this information out on social media. If you don’t already follow the Cherry Hill Township Facebook and Twitter page which can be found in information below. 
 
I want to say how proud I am of our police, fire, and municipal employees. We've asked a lot of our employees who have quickly adapted to a situation that continues to change. 
 
Similarly, I'm proud of our Cherry Hill businesses. We've had a great response from our restaurants, grocers, and businesses who are taking this crisis seriously. Which I believe speaks to Cherry Hill as community and how we continue to care for our neighbors.
 
It’s worth saying that this virus knows no gender and it knows no race. This virus has the potential to afflict people of all backgrounds. I encourage all residents to practice social distancing and avoid group gatherings.  I know this is hard on our families. We're all wearing multiple hats, but we can get through this together. I'm proud of our community. I'm proud of Cherry Hill. 

As we continue to run Town Hall as affectively and effectively as possible - information on how to conduct business with Town Hall can be found on our website . T his situation continues to evolve, so please monitor our website and social media sites for additional information.

Sincerely,
Susan Shin Angulo
Mayor

Senior Living
The Camden County Division of Senior and Disabled Services is prepared to ensure that no senior goes hungry during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Seniors in need of meals – for any reason – can call the Division at (856) 374-MEAL to make immediate arrangements. Clients will receive seven meals once per week. Drop-offs are performed one day per week and vary by town.

In addition to securing meals for seniors, the Freeholder Board is pooling the county’s resources to ensure any senior or disabled county resident in need is able to get assistance.

Senior and disabled residents can also call the Camden County Citizen Relief Emergency Worker (CREW) hotline if they are struggling to acquire essential supplies, prescription medication, travel to or from a medical appointment, or other critically important assistance. The Freeholder Board will also be working alongside the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey to facilitate help and support for our community. Together, both entities will be working to get individuals in at-risk populations the help they need to get through this historic time.

Senior and disabled residents, as well as neighbors and family of those in need, can call (856) 858-3220 to receive assistance. Healthy residents interested in volunteering should contact (856) 374-6396. Medical personnel interested in volunteering should contact (856) 374-6141.

Be safe and stay home. If you have any questions regarding Cherry Hill Senior Services, please contact Gaye Pino by email or (856) 661-4800.
