SOMERSET COUNTY - Somerset County Rotary clubs have announced that February is the end Hunger month.

As part of this campaign Central New Jersey Rotary, Rotaract, Interact Clubs and community organizations are planning to join together to prepare 50,000 food packages for developing countries and also collect non-perishable food items for local food banks on Feb. 26, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Raritan Valley Community College Cafeteria. 

This special service project is as part of Somerset County Rotary Club’s effort to curve hunger in the Central New Jersey area and around the world.  This project is more than just bringing a smile to the recipients; it is also an opportunity for each club’s members to gather with their families and friends to enjoy night of fellowship and the joy of giving back.

“The members of the Hillsborough Rotary Club value the relationship we have developed with the Somerset County Rotary Clubs, and look forward to partnering on service projects in the future,” said Rotary District Service project Director Joe Horner from Bridgewater.  

This is the first of many service projects that the proposed Somerset Rotary Clubs are planning for the community. Rotary Clubs for young people called Interact and Rotaract clubs, are dedicated to facilitating service projects for the entire family. 

“We know everyone’s time is limited these days and it is difficult to recruit members who might have to choose between a few hours with their families or volunteering for a service project,” said Branchburg Rotary Club President Michael Cohen. “We want to remove that barrier and make serving our community as a family affair.”
