Strengthening our community by supporting those around us

At Applewood, it is equally important that we not only work to make our own community the best it can be, but also support and participate in the community around us. As a not-for-profit organization, Applewood has a responsibility and is committed to giving back to the surrounding communities. Residents regularly volunteer with and donate to the Freehold Area Open Door food pantry, and through CentraState we offer a number of free healthcare resources to those citizens in need. The Applewood performing arts center is also available for use by the region’s many music, theater, and arts groups (and as a resident, you can jump in any time for an impromptu performance!).
