January Events

  • American Flag Drop Box

    Sunday, January 01, 2017 to Saturday, November 30, 2019

    As a revered symbol of freedom and justice, the flag of the United States of America needs to be treated with the utmost respect. This respect extends to the flag's eventual retirement and destruction. The United States Flag Code (4 USC Sec 8 Para (k) Amended 7 July 1976) states: "The Flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning." The Egizi Funeral Home felt this was needed to honorably and legally retire our symbol of freedom for all of those who have defended and gave their lives for this symbol of our freedom. Because here at the Egizi Funeral Home, we understand that "FREEDOM IS NOT FREE."

  • Lions Club Eyeglass Drop Box - Changing Lives, One Pair at a Time

    Sunday, January 01, 2017 to Tuesday, December 31, 2019

    Lions Recycle for Sight

    Throughout the year, Lions, Leos and other volunteers collect used eyeglasses and deliver them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center (LERCs). LERC volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses. Recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in low and middle income communities where they will have the greatest impact. You can drop off your usable eyewear at Lions-sponsored collection boxes in your community such as the one at the Egizi Funeral Home, Washington Twp. Donate glasses today and change someone's life.

November Events

  • Washington Township Police Department partake in nationwide Movember movement for men’s health

    Wednesday, November 01, 2017 to Thursday, November 30, 2017

    Officers and command staff will sport mustaches and beards throughout November to raise awareness and funds for male health issues.

    Chief of Police Patrick Gurcsik predicts a slew of 80’s mustaches this month as the Washington Township Police Department, in partnership with local PBA 318, participates in the national Movember movement to raise awareness and funds for male health issues.

    Beginning Nov. 1, approximately 35 officers, as well as members of the department’s command staff, will sport their best, or worst, facial hair for an initial donation of $25. Throughout the month, participants are encouraged to solicit donations from family members and local businesses to support charity organizations that provide funding for the treatment of prostate and testicular cancer, as well as mental health and suicide prevention for men.

    “Our job is tough, and we often neglect our own health to take care of others,” Gurcsik said. “I think Movember is an important reminder to get regular check-ups, eat healthy and exercise.”

    According to the Movember Foundation, a global men’s health charity, men die an average of six years earlier than women. Gurcsik said the department made the decision to take part in the fundraiser to encourage each other, their community and those they love to take care of their health.

    “At the Washington Township Police Department, we are a family,” Gurcsik said. “We are more community oriented than ever before, and this fundraiser will help build morale and camaraderie.”

    According to Officer and PBA President Kris Hice, much like the community policing efforts the department has taken part in this year, such as Coffee with a Cop, Fishing with a Cop and Cool Off with a Cop, the Movember movement aims to spark conversation between police and the community regarding the many health issues men encounter.

    “This is important for all officers to participate in because these health issues do not discriminate and could potentially affect all men,” Hice said.

    This month is the first time the department has participated in Movember, however Hice said, he hopes to involve additional organizations and members of the community in the future to expand the reach of awareness and donations for male cancer and mental health agencies.

    At the end of the month, participating teams, comprised of each platoon, along with the Professional Standards Bureau and Investigations Bureau will have the chance to win awards for the team that collected the most donations, as well as individual awards for best and worst mustache or beard. The department’s female officers and secretarial staff will determine the winners.

    Community members can follow the officers’ mustache and beard progress on the Washington Township Police Department social media sites. Those interested in making a donation can either mail a check to police headquarters, located at 1 McClure Drive, Sewell, or drop off a donation at Gurcsik’s office.

  • Operation Sweaters for Veterans

    Wednesday, November 01, 2017 : 12:00 PM to Thursday, November 30, 2017 : 12:00 AM

    On November 11, 2017, Americans throughout the world commemorate Veterans Day, a day set aside to thank the nation’s veterans for service given and sacrifices made to protect the freedoms of this great land. Our Funeral Home has teamed up with Veterans & Family Memorial Care for “Operation Sweaters for Veterans,” a unique way to honor these heroes.

    Beginning November 1st thru November 30th, 2017, our Funeral Home is collecting new or gently used sweaters, jackets & gloves to donate to veterans in VA hospitals or veterans who live in veterans homes. We hope this small gesture of collecting sweaters and gloves for these veterans will help everyone remember the sacrifices they’ve made in the name of the United States of America.

  • Shop with a Cop

    Friday, November 03, 2017 : 9:00 AM to Wednesday, December 20, 2017 : 12:00 AM

    The Washington Township Police Department is please to participate in a new Community Outreach Program called, Shop with a Cop. Although, Shop with a Cop has been around for years, this will be the first year Washington Township will participate in this worthy initiative.

    The purpose of Shop with a Cop is to provide a fun filled day for children in need throughout Washington Township, while creating a positive relationship with law enforcement in their community. This initiative aligns with our Department's Community Care-taking Goals. Elementary age children will be selected with the help of their school's guidance counselor. Each child that is selected will be given a sum of money depending on the size of the child's immediate family. Officers will then escort their "shopping buddy" around the store to pick out appropriate gifts for their family members. After shopping, the children will have lunch with members of the Washington Township Police Department, wrap their gifts and get a tour of the Police Department.

    Any resident or local business wishing to help sponsor a child for this event, or would like to contribute to helping partially sponsor a child this holiday season, please contact Officer Gary Egizi at ggegizi@pd.twp.washington.nj.us.
