the VBA, P.O. Box 349, Voorhees, New Jersey 08043.
The VBA was started in 1989 when a small group of Voorhees business owners formed a local club to promote
business in the Township. The mission of the VBA is to provide a forum for business persons and businesses in the
area to meet, share and discuss concerns and interests of a civic, commercial, cultural or economic nature. The VBA
also seeks to facilitate a dialogue and channel the energies and resources of the business community and elected
officials into improving Voorhees Township.
The VBA has also partnered with our Economic Development Committee to form the Voorhees Business Retention
Task Force to help our local businesses continue to thrive.
Other VBA activities include contributing money to Eastern High School’s Project Graduation and the Voorhees
Police Holiday Fund, providing scholarships to Eastern’s graduating seniors and sponsoring such events as
“Strike Out Kids’ Cancer Community Fair” and the Pumpkin Patch at our Annual Halloween in the Park. The
VBA is also a sponsor of our annual municipal calendar and has provided gifts to children at the Voorhees Pediatric Facility.
Members of the VBA have volunteered as judges for Eastern’s DECA Marketing Competition and as coaches for
Eastern’s Job Program. Young entrepreneurs and professionals experience life in the real world through the
VBA’s “Take A Student to Work Program.”
The VBA has its luncheon meeting on the third Wednesday of each month. The next meeting will be on March
19 at The Mansion. The VBA website also includes member information, a member directory, a member
application, upcoming events, links and contact information.
Plan on coming to the Bowling Fundraiser and an upcoming VBA luncheon meeting. Help make a difference in our community!
