At Quaker, we believe in being active in the community in which we live and work. So much so we kicked off The Quaker Way, an initiative to partner with local businesses and non-profits for just that purpose. Below are some of the organizations that inspire our continued efforts.
The Moorestown Department of Parks and Recreation offers many programs for children to thrive and have fun - providing constructive and creative leisure opportunities in the local community. We are proud sponsors of the Recreation Soccer program, Inclusive program summer camp and annual holiday party. We are co-hosts alongside Mission Voice for the 5K Race/1 Mile Walk on April 20 which benefits the Moorestown Parks and Recreation Inclusive programs.
The Y is one of the nation's leading nonprofits strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. We are proud sponsors of this year's 50th Annual Mount Laurel YMCA Golf Classic held in October, which raises funds to support a wide breadth of community programs aligned with their core mission. During the holiday season, we co-partner with our local Mount Laurel YMCA for the Toys for Tots toy drive.
The Moorestown Business Association is an organization of retail, professional, and non-profit businesses working together to cultivate a spirit of cooperative community effort. As active members, we participate in monthly meetings. Come visit our table located outside of our office on Main Street during the MBA's fun filled family events in June on Moorestown Day and October on Autumn Day.

We continue to support this wonderful program for children.
Moorestown Youth Baseball Federation provides an opportunity for children to play baseball while learning fundamentals, lessons of fair play, teamwork, and tolerance inherent in the game. In supporting MYBF, we sponsor a banner at the John Pryor Baseball Field.
The National Brain Tumor Society continues its legacy of driving research accomplishments and discoveries toward brain tumor treatments, servicing, guiding, and preparing patients. We continue to support their efforts for providing a voice and community for all individuals impacted by brain tumors.
The Lily's Hope Foundation supports babies, children, and their families with unexpected and urgent needs due to premature births. In the month of January, we participate in the blanket drive by collecting adult and newborn-size blankets with the support of our local outreach.
The Food Bank of South Jersey exists to provide an immediate solution to the urgent problem of hunger by providing food to people in need, teaching them to eat nutritiously, and helping them to find sustainable ways to improve their lives. We continue to support their efforts.
