2024 Rotary Day of Service

Saturday, June 8, 2024
Forked River- Lacey-Smith Community Center
8:00 am to 2:00 pm
15 E Lacey Rd, Forked River, NJ 08731

 


Join 30,000 Rotary members around the world in helping us feed the hungry and engage in other service projects.

 

imageDistrict 7505 Volunteers, teaming up with Rise Against Hunger will prepare about 20,000 meal packets, at two locations on two days.

This is part of a worldwide effort. We are joining more than 800 Rotary clubs, over 30,000 Rotarians, and thousands of volunteers spanning ten states and seven countries who are joining forces on May 18 (and for us June 8 also) to tackle wide-ranging projects from collecting clothing for those experiencing homelessness and refurbishing long-neglected parks to feeding those with food insecurity.

Does your business or organization want to get involved with Rotary and the Voorhees Breakfast Rotary Club in particular? We have a Corporate Membership Program, which is open to any type of business or organization. We have designed it to give you the maximum amount of flexibility to participate in Rotary. 

The structure is simple. When approved for membership, you are able to "share" your participation among up to five individuals in your organization. These “corporate designees” can divide responsibility for attending club meetings, serving on projects, and participating in club activities. (Of course, you all may attend together at any meeting or function - you are all considered members.) 
Our dues and fees are reasonable. The quarterly cost per member is $60, plus the cost of meals. We have 6 in-person meetings per quarter, and the cost for 6 meals is $102!
If you are interested, please reach out to any of our members, or to our membership chair, Jacqui Canter, jacquic@verizon.net / 609-280-6081; or Past President, Steve Neuner, sneuner@nv-njlaw.com / 609-230-0040. To find out more about what we do and who we are visit our Facebook page or our elsewhere on this website. 
Welcome to the Voorhees Breakfast Rotary Club
We are an active service club that conducts charitable service projects in Voorhees, South Jersey and, as part of  Rotary International, across the globe. Locally, we are one of the 73 clubs of Rotary District 7505, which covers nine counties from Monmouth to Cape May.
 
Our club is made up of people from all walks of life, professions and businesses that believe in giving back to our community.
 
If you believe in community service and want to participate in innovative programs that help children and families then we hope you will consider joining us. We invite you to stop by a Thursday morning meeting to meet us (no obligation of course) and get a feel for our projects. Or join our Friends of Rotary list. (Just ask)
