Hackensack Rotary hosts feed the homeless event

On Wednesday, January 8, 2014, the Hackensack Rotary Club continued their tradition of feeding the homeless at the Bergen County Health & Human Services building.  Over 100 guests were provided a hot meal with a warm, friendly smile. Hackensack High School students volunteered their time and talents by helping to prepare the meal as well as assist in serving the dinner guests.

The Rotary Club holds fundraisers throughout the year in order to sponsor these worthwhile and much needed events. Homelessness and hunger is a growing epidemic in this country and the Hackensack Rotary Club is dedicated to do our part to help those in need.
