CALDWELL, NJ - At the regular meeting of the Rotary Club of the Caldwells on Nov. 17, the club donated $1,000 in gift cards to the Caldwell Food Pantry, which will be included in Thanksgiving baskets that will help hundreds of local residents. The gift has become an annual tradition for many years.

Maria Burac, director of Caldwell Human Services, said this is one of the most demanding times of the year. The food bank provides services to more than 100 residents of Caldwell and West Caldwell.

The Caldwell Food Pantry, located at 14 Park Ave. in Caldwell, is available to any Caldwell or West Caldwell resident who needs food. For more information on how to help the Caldwell Food Pantry, make a local donation, or be supported by the food bank, contact Burac at the Community Center at 1 Provost Square, in Caldwell, or call 973-403-4623.

The Rotary Club of the Caldwells, which meets regulary at the Cloverleaf Tavern at 395 Bloomfield Ave. in Caldwell, each Tuesday at 12:15 pm, dedicates its time and talents to serve its communities and the world, supporting dozens of worthwhile causes both locally and internationally. Rotary International, the world's oldest service club organization, comprises some 30,000 clubs in more than 165 countries.
