“Rotary is about giving—the greatest kindness that exists. The Community House is our
gathering place and outlet for that kindness to happen. What greater legacy is there than
giving back from a place that gives so much.”
~Paula Fairley, Moorestown Rotary Member & Resident
Many of the groups who call The Community House home pave the way to greater opportunity for those who follow. There are countless examples of the good work being done under our roof — work that impacts not only our neighbors, but people around the world. Here are just a few:
Rotary International, a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service and help to build goodwill and peace in the world, meet here weekly. With the motto “service above self”, Rotary has two groups in Moorestown, breakfast and lunch, both who work tirelessly to model behavior and give back.
MoorArts, a local non-profit made up of parents, educators, and residents, is dedicated to preserving a long-standing commitment. They have administered thousands of dollars in grants and awards to support arts-related projects in the public schools and in scholarships to seniors pursuing advanced study in the arts.
It is estimated that 5.1 million Americans may have Alzheimer’s Disease, a progressive, degenerative disorder that attacks the brain’s nerve cells, resulting in loss of memory, thinking and language skills, and behavioral changes. The Tender, a non-profit, volunteer based organization, and our largest tenant, brings relief to the caregivers of patients with Alzheimers by providing a place where both can find what they need. The daycare center that occupies the lower level of the Community House offers respite to caregivers for homebound seniors faced with these issues as well as medical transportation.
