 Monmouth County Safe Place Program
The Borough of Matawan and the Township of Aberdeen are proud to announce that they are participants in the Monmouth County Safe Place Program. If you own or manage a business in either town, find out how your business can be named a "Safe Place" in our community.  

The SAFE PLACE PROGRAM is a law enforcement-sponsored concept that enhances public education regarding the reporting of bias incidents and hate crimes. The program is an active collaboration between the police, businesses, social organizations and schools, designed to assist in making communities a safer place to live. Any individual who sees the SAFE PLACE logo will know that the business, organization, or location will provide a safe space for someone to call 911 for assistance, should they feel unsafe.

Chamber Member News
Welcome New Member: Wishing Well Laundromat
Did you know that according to a recent study by Lombordo Homes, laundry is the third most hated household task in America. So why do people do it themselves?

The Washing Well Laundromat has been a staple in Aberdeen on Route 34 for more than 20 years. We do more than just provide you with a place to wash your clothes when your machine breaks.
We pick up and deliver your laundry after we wash and fold it.

You can literally bring your dirty clothes to us in a garbage bag, and we will wash and fold it for you. If you don’t have time to stop by, you can schedule for us to pick it up and deliver it back to you.

We also do commercial accounts. If your business creates laundry, contact us, and take that off your plate. We will work around your schedule to have it ready when you need it. Drop us a line if you have any questions about what we can do for you or if you want to know what the top two hated chores are.
