PATERSON,NJ - While they may have caused adjustment, stay at home orders and social distancing directives couldn’t stop Paterson Rotarians from meeting their organization’s mission of “service above self.”

Earlier this month members of the three Paterson Rotary chapters joined together to donate 100 KN95 masks and 100 reusable gowns to healthcare workers at both Saint Joseph’s Health and Barnert Medical Arts Complex. 

On hand was Mayor Andre Sayegh, himself a Rotarian.

“Rotary volunteers have been proud supporters of the community for over 100 years,” the chapters said in an email to TAPinto Paterson.

The Paterson Great Falls Rotary was represented by President Ernestine Dukes-Lowe, Heru Keonte, Perry Lighty, David Lowe, and Sheree Ashe-Tillar, the Paterson AM Rotary was represented President Jose Gonzalez and Winifred Harrison, and the oldest of the clubs, the Paterson Rotary Club, was represented by President Lori Mambelli, Sandra Bosque, Albert Scala, Scott See and John Susani.
