Strong communities are created with the assistance of committed volunteers. In Ewing, many opportunities are available for talented and dedicated residents to contribute to their community. Residents can volunteer for an appointment to a Community Board, Committee or Commission; assist with a number of our emergency services; clean up a park or trail; teach a computer class, or call a senior bingo game. The possibilities are limitless.
Volunteering is also a great way make new friends in town, as well as to receive those intangible rewards that come from giving back to your community. This page lists some of our typical volunteer opportunities. If you have a talent or skill and would like to serve, please fill out our volunteer application. Appointments to the Township’s Boards, Committees, and Commissions are limited by statute and may not always have open positions, but there may other way to use your talents. Please file a volunteer application with Township Administration to be considered for openings. You can also contact Township Administration at x7605 if you have any questions.
There are over a dozen boards, commissions and committees in Ewing Township. Board members are volunteers and appointed by the Mayor. Residents interested in volunteering their time and experience to one of these boards can submit an application. For more information about the role and responsibilities of each appointed board please check the webpages for each. Call the Mayor’s Confidential Secretary at x7647 for additional information about securing an appointment.
Neighborhood Watch is one of the oldest and best-known crime prevention concepts in North America. It empowers citizens to become active in community crime prevention efforts through participation in Neighborhood Watch groups, well organized groups of concerned citizens which assist the police by effectively becoming the eyes and ears of the community.
