The friends and volunteers of Good Counsel-South Jersey sponsored a walk-a-thon May 22 to raise funds for the home being prepared for single mothers and their children.
Supporters walked in five South Jersey locations: Washington Lake Park, Sewell; Haddon Lake Park, Haddon Heights; Memorial Park, Cinnaminson; Freedom Park, Medford; and on the boardwalk in Sea Isle City.
Work is progressing nicely at the former convent of St. Casimir Parish (now Resurrection), in Riverside, N.J. Contractors are preparing bids to bring the building up to current codes. It will require a sprinkler system, fire, smoke, and CO2 alarming, fire doors, an ADA compliant ramp and bathroom, along with some plumbing, electric upgrades, clean-up, painting, and landscaping.
The local group is looking for volunteers, materials, in-kind help, and donations. Contact Bill Klatt, 856-589-4925, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Brenda Quinn 856-423-3468, email@example.com. More information is on the website: www.goodcounselhomes.org
