Hackensack Rotary hosts 176 hungry for "Christmas in July"

Today, the Hackensack and Teaneck Rotary Clubs joined together to feed 176 hungry at the Christ Church on State Street.


Club Presidents Sharon Bregman and Kathy Frost have seen a great need in the community and have taken their year in office (in part) as an opportunity to join forces and build on what has historically been a once annual project of the Hackensack Rotary.

The Rotary Clubs have partnered with program coordinator Judy Banes of the On Our Own Self Help Center (179 Main Street) to spread the word to those in need and make this a successful project.
