August 6, 2020

TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)–Mayor W. Reed Gusciora and Fire and Emergency Services Director Derrick J.V. Sawyer today thanked the Princeton Alliance Church for graciously donating 1,000 smoke detectors to the City of Trenton.

“We are grateful for Princeton Alliance Church and their support of the capital city,” said Mayor Gusciora. “In these troubled times, it’s inspiring to see community groups from both within the city and the surrounding area continue come through for those in need. This donation will have an immediate impact on the safety of our residents.”

“Working smoke alarms reduce the risk of death in a residential fire by up to 50 percent,” said Director Sawyer. “We’re always trying to get more smoke alarms in Trenton homes, and when our reserves were running low, Princeton Alliance Church stepped in with this major contribution. These smoke alarms will help save lives.”

The Princeton Alliance Church has been a continued supporter of the people of Trenton. It’s provided hundreds of meals for Trenton community recreation centers, supplied groceries to seniors, and donated thousands of disposable masks and hygiene products for the COVID-19 shelter.

“It’s a pleasure to work with Mayor Gusciora, whom I find passionate about the city and serving the community,” said Lead Pastor Boyd Hannold. “We pray we can keep this relationship going. If we have the resources and they have the needs, we want to be the people that make a difference.”
