A Message from the Mayor

Dear Neighbor,

Don’t let May 4 catch you by surprise. New Jersey’s ban on single-use bags is quickly approaching!

I, along with Township Council and the Cherry Hill Green Team, encourage residents to bring reusable bags when heading out to shop or eat, as the ban on providing or selling single-use bags in all retail, grocery and food service businesses goes into effect on May 4.

Together, we can help make our community cleaner, more sustainable, and better prepared for the future ahead. Keep an eye on the Township’s website and social media pages in the coming weeks for more information about the new law, and how you can pick up your own free Cherry Hill reusable bag in May!

For more information and links to resources, visit

Finally, I’d like to extend a Happy Ramadan to everyone celebrating this joyous occasion.

Senior Living

Help wanted signs are everywhere, and businesses are suffering and even closing because of lack of employees. One idea to help with this problem is to hire a senior citizen. Seniors offer a lifetime of experience in so many fields and are often able to work flexible hours and are reliable. Seniors can work in their field of expertise, or use this work as a way to try a new job.

For many seniors, working has many benefits even if they are only working a few hours each week. Working gives the opportunity to interact with others, feel useful and needed, and the extra money earned can improve lifestyles. So if you are an employer, hire a senior and if you are a senior apply - our businesses need you! 

For information or questions on this or any senior issues contact Gaye Pino, Senior Services Program Coordinator at or 856-661-4800.

AARP Senior Tax Help- By Appointment Only!

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide services will again be available to Cherry Hill area residents from February 1 through April 12 - with a different twist for 2021: There will be no on-site traditional tax preparation where the taxpayer sits with an AARP Tax-Aide during the tax preparation process.

Instead, taxpayers will have the choice of 2 service models:

Same Day Drop-Off: Taxpayers interact with an IRS-certified Tax-Aide in a 20-30 minute in-person and socially distanced meeting. During the appointment, the Tax-Aide will complete the intake process and write a receipt for all tax documents collected. These meetings, available by appointment only, will take place in the Municipal Building in Room 208 on Tuesdays and Fridays, 10am to 2pm.

Before the taxpayer leaves, they will make a follow-up appointment to return the same day to review the printed tax return, sign an authorization for AARP Foundation to file the return electronically, and acknowledge their receipt of the original tax documents. 

Taxpayers can only make appointments by accessing the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Site Locator for Cherry Hill at: after January 15th. Taxpayers will receive an automatic confirmation email. A follow-up email from will include the links to documents to be printed, completed, and brought to the drop-off site. If you do not have a printer, packets containing all required documents will be available for pick-up at the Community Center and the Municipal building.

If there are no appointments available, taxpayers can add themselves to the appointment waitlist. An AARP Foundation Tax-Aide will contact waitlisted taxpayers by phone as appointments become available. 

Self Preparation: Under this model, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide provides taxpayers with free access to software so they can prepare their own taxes. Taxpayers can also request help from an IRS-certified counselor to coach them through the process by phone or through computer screen-sharing. Participants can only request virtual tax prep assistance through the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide's website Participants must provide a private email address to use this model.

Please do not contact this site about any of the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide service offerings. They are wonderful, supportive hosts, but they are not AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers.
