The Relief Engine Company is donating $3,000 to help the Community House of Moorestown survive these challenging times. The staff and board of the Community House are grateful for their generosity in our time of need and their continued care and support of this town treasure.

“The Relief Engine Company is setting a wonderful example for our community and the need to support this historic building and worthy nonprofit organization. We are grateful for all the individuals, businesses, and organizations that have come forward to support us during these challenging times. We are confident that our amazing community will continue to come together to protect the Community House,” said Executive Director Caryn Lynch

As a gathering place, the Community House is being greatly impacted by this pandemic. The House is experiencing the perfect storm: lost rental income, canceled major fundraisers and very few people planning future events. There have been nearly 200 event cancellations with no end in sight.

The Community House is an independent 501(c)(3) and receives no government funding. Donations and needed and appreciated and are fully tax deductible. Donations are being used to pay necessary maintenance and operating expenses for the nearly 100-year-old building. Please donate at https://www.facebook.com/donate/723433741763713/. If not on Facebook, donations can be made on our website or by mailing a check to The Community House, 16 East Main Street, Moorestown, NJ 08057.

The Relief Engine Company is a volunteer fire company and continues to support community events and activities along with conducting the annual Easter Flower Sale, the scarecrow making at Autumn in Moorestown and the breakfast with Santa at the station following the annual holiday parade on the first Saturday of December.
