Camden County:

On August 11, 2020, the Camden County Department of Health announced 25 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Camden County. This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 9,206 in Camden County today and 550 total fatalities.

“The rate of transmission in New Jersey has fallen back below 1.0 for two consecutive days, a sign that our collective effort to stop the spread of this disease is working,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “This fight is going to continue to be a push and pull until we have a vaccine. If we wear masks, social distance, and work with contact tracers, then we will continue trending in a positive direction. Our region is showing the country what a strong, sustained recovery looks like, and the residents of Camden County have played an integral role in making that possible.”

The Department of Health is announcing 25 additional positive cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) identified in Camden County. Trace investigations are being facilitated with the patients and remain ongoing.

In addition, the county Department of Health is also announcing 1,338 confirmed resident cases and 527 staff cases have occurred out of the aggregate case load of 9,206 in our 56 long-term care facilities.

UrbanPromise Uses A Community Foundation of South Jersey Grant To Maintain Vital Services

Haddonfield, NJ – UrbanPromise, a Christian non-profit youth organization in Camden, New Jersey, secured a $5,000 grant from the Community Foundation of South Jersey’s (CFSJ) COVID-19 Response Fund to supplement its Emergency Family Fund addressing financial hardships of families UrbanPromise serves. 

UrbanPromise continues to achieve its mission in the face of the pandemic via modified youth and family programming.   The nonprofit organization has transitioned its schools to online learning and enhanced the wellness team to provide emotional support for parents and students. 

UrbanPromise suspended spring activities and pivoted programming to creative approaches such as the creation and distribution of survival kits containing food ingredients and recipes, seeds for those who wanted to start or add to their home garden, and the delivery of bikes to those who wanted to stay active.

“We are very grateful for the grant the Community Foundation of South Jersey was able to provide us during this difficult period,” said UrbanPromise President Bruce Main. “The spring season is a huge fundraising time for us and we had to cancel everything due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The grant enabled us to provide critical support to our families.”

“UrbanPromise’s mission to engage and build developmental assets for Camden youth and young adults supports strong families and deep community in Camden,” said CFSJ Executive Director Andy Fraizer. “This and every grant from the South Jersey COVID-19 Response Fund is an investment in our neighbors during this difficult time.” .”

The South Jersey COVID-19 Response Fund continues to support local nonprofits serving communities impacted by the pandemic.  South Jersey neighbors, businesses, and philanthropy donated more than $1 million to the Fund. However, South Jersey nonprofits requested more than $6 million.  

If you would like to contribute to the only such fund where donations stay in our South Jersey region, please visit www.southjerseyresponsefund.org.

Creek Road Strip Stores (Across From Bellmawr Lake) Under New Ownership, Undergoing Major Face-Lift

The strip stores on Creek Road, across from Bellmawr Lake, have recently sold and are undergoing a major face-lift.

We recently noticed that serious rehabbing of the property is currently underway. There is no word as to what future businesses will be leasing there once renovations are complete.

This unit used to be the corner store. (SJO Photo)

I grew up in the “Dead-End” of Bellmawr – where Booth Drive and Peach Road intersect and right down the street from these strip stores. I remember that the end unit closest to Peach Road was once a corner store and used to have video games — Asteroid being one of them. If we had money, we would get candy, soda, or ice-cream there.

Sometimes when we rode our bikes, we’d head up the street to the stores. Starting from the “top,” we rode down each descending “step” that’s in front of each store. I’m sure the owners just loved that.

We would ride our bikes down these “steps”, starting at the top left and riding down each step past each store. (SJO Photo)

At one time, there was a limousine service, a gym, a martial arts academy, and up until recently, a Cash 4 Gold store and a hair salon.

Looking forward to watching these renovations progress and seeing what business will set up shop there.
