HACKENSACK–  On Saturday, December 28th, 2013, the Hackensack Rotary Club, in cooperation with Judy Banes of the On Our Own Self Help Center, held its annual Holiday Luncheon to feed the needy at the Christ Church on State Street in Hackensack.  Over 200 guests were provided a hot meal with a warm, friendly smile.  Hats, scarves and warm clothing were also distributed to the attendees. 

 

With the assistance of local charitable organizations, this yearly tradition continues to grow.  Lou Knaub, a Teaneck Rotarian and Churchwarden for the Christ Church, arranges for the use of the church hall, as well as members of the Church who volunteer their time, talents and efforts to prepare the meals.   Many local volunteers assembled to provide musical entertainment.  The Hackensack Golf Club assisted with donating hams and the members of the Hackensack Rotary, along with their family members and many local volunteers, provided for and served the meals. 

 

Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

 

There are 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.

Peter Wells is the 7490 Disaster Chair. I do not think when he took the job on he expected he would be organizing for his own area. Attached are a bunch of pictures from Sunday. In a Vacant Store on Rt 17 in Paramus Peter gathered supplies for Sandy relief. He filled and emptied the building twice. Since the storm they loaded over 50 trucks, vans, Pick Ups, SUV's, Etc . Yesterday I was lucky to say I have a van and can drive somewhere with something. I assisted a large group of people do a crazy but organized loading of 24 vehicles. The vehicles delivered supplies up and down the NJ coast. We loaded generators, heaters, cleaning supplies, food, water, blankets, clothing (new & used) Winter coats. Dippers, car seats, high chairs, school supplies and more.

You will see a picture (2nd to last picture) of Peter (with his back to you) in the Red Sweatshirt with a mostly empty building. That entire area was full 2 hours earlier. The boxes and bags on the left went into my van and I delivered them to Brick NJ. All Blankets. The Stack of 7 plus others are boxes of Blankets from Chicago O'Hare Rotary.

There is one picture of me in the Box Truck we loaded. That was going with a convoy to the beach area. We packed more in it after that picture was taken. 

Anything that was there after I left was being picked up by Salvation Army and others. I hear we supplied them about 60,000 lbs in cloths.

Bonnie Sirower, Bill Rupp, Suraj P. Bhatia and many others was there
