ATLANTIC CITY — Virtua Health on Saturday, June 4, honored New Jersey State Sen. Troy Singleton with its Humanitarian Award at its annual Gala at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa.
Virtual Health said the gala was an “inspiring and uplifting evening in celebration of our shared commitment to be Here for Good.”
The organization said it honored Singleton for his commitment to the health and well-being of New Jersey residents.
“Senator Singleton has devoted himself to public service and has demonstrated a deep commitment to meeting the evolving needs of our diverse communities,” Virtua said. “As an advocate for the people of New Jersey, Senator Singleton has been a champion on many important health care issues, including improving access to healthy and affordable food for those in need, spreading awareness to reduce COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy, and protecting health care workers from acts of violence.
“As a public servant, he has also demonstrated a strong commitment to community service and has hosted monthly volunteer events encouraging hundreds of others to join him. His efforts will have a lasting impact for people across New Jersey for years to come.”
Singleton said he was humbled to receive the award.
“Being recognized for my commitment to public health and my service to our communities is truly humbling,” Singleton said on Facebook. “I am motivated by the mantra that ‘service is the rent we pay for living on this earth’ and I work each and every day to ensure that my deeds are reflective of that sentiment. I am truly grateful to Virtua for this amazing recognition, and the introductory video was truly moving. Thank you to everyone for the kind words.”
Proceeds from the 2022 Virtua Health Gala will benefit its Eat Well Food Access Programs, which brings fresh, healthy food to underserved communities in southern New Jersey.
Since 2017, the Eat Well Mobile Farmers Market, Eat Well Food Pharmacies, and new Eat Well Mobile Grocery Store have become trusted resources that the community and patients have come to rely on.
