UNION, NJ - The Union Rotary Club, in conjunction with Hillmann Consulting, put together and delivered twenty fully stocked backpacks to the YWCA of Elizabeth earlier this week.
The backpacks were filled with donated school supplies and were delivered to Shannon Myre, a representative of the YWCA by the Rotary’s Sergeant at Arms Frank Lawrence and President Rob O'Connell.
“This is an event that our club loves doing,” said O’Connell. “Providing educational materials to those who otherwise may not be able to have them is such a rewarding feeling. It's a project we look forward to each year.”
Hillmann Consulting donated the backpacks and other members of Rotary provided the school supplies. The Union Rotary has been delivering school backpacks for the past five years.
