We were proud to partner with the Maywood, Englewood, and Teaneck clubs to feed emergency personnel and staff of the New Bridge COVID19 testing center during this pandemic.  We are proud to give back and support those who are keeping our communities safe!
In response to the COVID19 pandemic, the Carroll family of Hackensack has turned their garage into a food pantry.  They are providing weekly grocery deliveries to more than 500 families in need in the Hackensack community.  We are proud to support their efforts!
Today our member Rich Gelber was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow. He joins many of our past and present members in receiving this prestigious recognition.
 
Rotary established the recognition in 1957 to encourage and show appreciation for substantial contributions to what was then the Foundation’s only program, Rotary Foundation Fellowships for Advanced Study, the precursor to Ambassadorial Scholarships.
 
Did you know that we sponsor an Interact (High School) and REACT (Middle School) Club? Interact and REACT are designed to teach young adults the ideals of service above self. Our REACT club recently made and donated over 300 PB&J sandwiches to those in need in Newark. Each sandwich came complete with an inspirational message. Good job Hackensack Middle School REACT Club!
Today, our club came together to donate water for residents of Newark who are currently without clean drinking water. 

Hackensack Rotary had as our guests today four outstanding students who we gave scholarships to in 2018. They returned to share their experiences in their first year of college.  We also awarded community grants to a number of local organizations to support their efforts in with youth and adults with disabilities, children suffering from cancer, rehabilitation for adults reentering the community after incarceration, and keeping our Hackensack River clean!

Today, our Rotary club speaker PDG Dominic Jengo presented a program called Wheelchair Foundation UK where wheelchairs are purchased and delivered to those in need anywhere in the world. Our club donated three wheel chairs in remembrance of our three Rotarians who passed away within the last year: Fred Schmidt, Al Sproul, and Serge Krikorian.

 

We had a great night tonight at our annual re-organization and installation of new members and officers. We were joined by our District Governor Nikki Mederos. We are beyond excited for our Centennial year celebrating 100 years of serving our community!!
 

We had a great time at today's luncheon as we awarded scholarships to a number of deserving local high school students! One of our best meetings of the year!

 

For Arbor Day this year we as a club, along with our Interact Club, donated two trees to the High School!

 

Each year we make grants available to local charitable causes. We also make mini grants available to elementary school teachers to provide educational workshops for their students. This year, one of our mini grants was used for a workshop on metamorphosis. These elementary students watched as caterpillars turned into butterflies!

Last year the Hackensack Rotary planted two trees on Arbor Day in front of the Hackensack High School. This year we will install plaques to remember the event. Thanks to GTFM LLC for supplying the labor and material for the plaques which were presented to us today at our meeting.

 

On December 29, 2018 the Hackensack Rotary hosted a luncheon for more than 100 local people in need.  At the luncheon we distributed coats, hats, scarves, gloves, and other clothing collected as part of our Fall Coat Drive.  Thank you to everyone who made donations and gave of their time to make this event a great success!
 
This week, the Hackensack Rotary distributed dictionaries to every third grader in the Hackensack Public Schools. We also sent home Spanish-English dictionaries to our bilingual families. This is such a great project that we are thrilled to have been doing for many years! 
 
 
On December 30, 2017 Hackensack Rotary, once again,

The meal including turkey (donated by Hackensack Rotary),
ham and all the side dishes and deserts.
