Sheraton Eatontown Festival of Trees Support and Spirit Series goes out to Synergy Singles. This years event will feature over 30 local charitable and non-profit organizations. The goal in writing these posts is further exposure for participating groups with the hopes of drawing in folks who may never have heard of them before. Our Festival of Trees team wants to raise money for charity and make this our best year out of the 22 we have been hosting Festival of Trees.

Synergy Singles in Community Service was founded in 1988, is a singles’ volunteer group sponsored by the Volunteer Center of Monmouth County.  Membership is open to single adults ages 21 and above, and volunteer activities include many “done in a day” projects which make it easier for single adults to make a difference.  Annually, Synergy members participate in about 100 volunteer  activities benefiting approximately 35 different local nonprofit agencies.

Along with assisting these agencies with fundraisers such as walkathons, “food and wine” events and other special events, Synergy’s activities include self-generated activities such as an annual spring party for the adults with developmental disabilities in the CPC Behavioral Healthcare Supported Housing Services program and an annual Holiday party for the residents of the Laurel Bay Health and Rehabilitation Center in Keansburg.

Synergy holds monthly meetings every third Wednesday of the month at the Eatontown Public Library (except in February and July, when the meeting is held at an alternate location), 33 Broad Street, Eatontown, with an orientation session for new people at 7:15 p.m., followed by the regular part of the meeting at 7:30 p.m. While attendance at meetings is encouraged, there is no requirement for members to attend meetings. Meeting activities include discussions of past volunteer activities and upcoming volunteer opportunities, light refreshments, socializing and volunteer/social activity sign-ups. In addition, meetings often feature either an icebreaker activity, a guest speaker or an after-meeting activity.
