Union Rotary Speakers
Members of the Union and Maplewood Rotary Club recently heard a presentation by Dr. Ed Boffa, .
The Interact Club, affiliated with the Rotary Club of Union, encourages students to place service above self. Dr. Boffa highlighted some of the activities of the Interact Club.
In the 2021-22 school year, the students collected 1,099 pairs of new socks, which, in conjunction with the Union Rotary Club, were delivered to the Union YMCA for distribution to shelters in Elizabeth. The students assisted the Maplewood Rotary Club with their annual Christmas Tree sale fundraiser. The students also raised and donated $750 to the Children's Specialized Hospital Foundation, ran a book drive and collected 185 books for underprivileged NJ children, participated in the Color-a-Smile program, and supported the Kiva Loan Program in association with the Union Rotary to aid those in underprivileged countries.
The Rotary Club of Union appreciates all of the good work accomplished by the students of Union High School Interact Club under the advisement of Dr. Boffa!
What an amazing night! Our club was thrilled to be with everyone last night for our Eloquence Soirée where we awarded scholarships to three Union High School Students and honored Jill Hall and the incredible nurses of Union Township School District.
Benjamin Duvelson, Ojuolape Odusanya, and Mya Wilkins took our breath away with their speeches/poems and we were so happy to award them with three well-deserved scholarships. They are a great representation of the talented youth of Union High School.
We can't thank Jill Hall and the Nurses of Union Township School District enough for all that they do. In the last few years they have proven how strong and dedicated they are to protecting our children, and for that we are forever grateful. It was our pleasure to recognize the extraordinary people that they are.
Thank you to our amazing event committee, club members, and guests who helped make the evening such a success. We loved being in the company of so many smiling faces and we can't wait to see everyone again next year!
 

Members of the Union Rotary Club worked together to grant sweet dreams to needy children and adults in the area. Each month the Rotarians conduct a drive to assist residents in the area. For the month of December, the members donated new pajamas and collected a total of 15 sets, two pants and one pair of shorts. Sharon Brangman, Geralanne Maglione and Kylie Nemeth at Hillman Consulting collected and sorted the donations. Cecil Cates delivered the pajamas to the Elizabeth Corp of the Salvation Army where they were distributed to needy adults and children. 

The Union High School Interact Rotary Club held a sock drive and surpassed all expectations! Dr. Edward Boffa, advisor of the Interact Club, reported the club members held a drive last year and collected approximately 600 pairs of socks. This year, the students set a goal of 1,000 pairs of socks and beat that goal by collecting 1,099 pairs of new socks!
Jodi Pelano, Branch Executive Director of the Union Gateway Family YMCA, and Kathy Arminio of the Union Rotary Club, accepted and delivered the socks to the Elizabeth YMCA. Theresa McCoy, Housing Director of the Elizabeth YMCA and Laura Margeotes, Branch Executive Director,were thrilled to accept the bags of socks which will be distributed to the children and families in the temporary, transitional and supportive housing units.
The Interact Club is a service club for youth ages 12 to 18 and is part of Rotary International, the world’s first service club organization. Dr. Boffa and the members of the Interact Club, Union High School, are dedicated to fostering goodwill and enriching the community. Interactors sponsor a minimum of two community service projects annually.
The Interact Club, the Union Rotary Club and the YMCA were proud to work together to bring this gift of warmth to children and families in the Union County area.
