Hometown Heroes 2018: Debbie Anderson

Last Edited:

CUMBERLAND COUNTY, N.J.—Debbie Anderson has been the president of the Vineland High School All-Sports Booster Club for the past five years and takes charge of all the events in which the Club is involved. Along with other members, she orders, picks up, sets up, and transports all food and supplies for the concession stands during football, basketball and wrestling events.

She organizes the Hall of Fame Banquet in November and the All-Sports Banquet in June. While her five children were students at Mennies Elementary and Landis Intermediate schools, she was very involved in their PTOs and was president of both organizations for many years. Debbie was a member of the Vineland Jr. Woman’s Club as well as a volunteer at the Vineland Soup Kitchen.

Meanwhile, she is very involved with her family. She helped take care of her father-in-law who recently passed away from Alzheimer’s and has been busy helping a longtime friend fighting a crippling disease. For other friends who were incapacitated for a time, she cooked and brought supper two or three times a week.
