HILLSIDE, NJ - Over 40 members of the Governor Livingston Rotary Interact Club spent Saturday morning at the Community Food Bank of New Jersey volunteering with other state civic groups to help the more than 900,000 hungry people in New Jersey.

Food Bank host Omar Henigan, welcomed the students to the Hillside warehouse facility and explained the function of the Food Bank and its role for those who need help in all of New Jersey’s communities. The Interact members then spent two hours sorting various donations that have been received into specific categories and prepared them for distribution at various local partner agencies.

According to the Interact Club advisors Doreen Ladinski and Sharon Leahy, the service based club is active throughout the school year by participating in the Make A Wish Walk in the fall, volunteering at the Rotary Club Annual Pancake Breakfast, helping with special needs adults through the YMCA, just to name a few of their efforts.
