We had a great time stuffing boxes full of fun goodies for our Nutley Veterans! 
Thank you to all who helped: Maria Hamlin, member and veteran, who offered us the VFW location, and members JoAnn Scarpelli, Linda Buset, Joe Isabella and Dorothy Huey for making it a real group effort!
 
Special thanks to Gunny Mario Monaco who procured the contents for the boxes, Courtney Johnson for introducing us to Mario and John Monaco who asked Nanina's in the Park for tomato sauce for the boxes!

It was our pleasure to support Interact in their Sock and Mask Drive for The Real House! (Since 2004, Real House, Inc. (RHI) has transformed the lives of over 3,000 women and men, through our emergency shelters for women and men, substance abuse treatment program, halfway houses and sober living homes. In July 2017, the nonprofit arm of RHI—Real House Recovery, Inc. (RHR)— was awarded a major grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to provide housing and job placement for upwards of 80 homeless veteran families in Essex County.)
Nutley Rotary found a way to carry out a fun service project in person while staying safe in this covid era.
Thank you to our poinsettia wrappers: John M, Danny, Tom, JoAnn, James, Dorothy, Claudia and Alexis!
The next day our Nutley Rotary elves John M, Tom, James and Dorothy visited the two senior buildings in town to leave a surprise poinsettia for every resident! Having fun while doing good, that's Nutley Rotary!

Nutley Rotary did not let Covid cancel plans to welcome new teachers to Nutley! 
Education is a Rotary focus area that we care deeply about.
Our event was organized by Sue Peters, wife of member Bob Peters, and she did an exceptional job.
We had socially distant tables and food lines, hand sanitizer, decorations and a beautiful sunset.
Each new staff member was presented with an apple and a Rotary pen and a warm welcome from the District and Rotary.
 
Nutley Rotary is committed to fighting food insecurity in our community, and we have partnered with the Nutley Family Service Bureau many times in this effort.
This week our member John Monaco picked up 20 boxes of non-perishable macaroni and cheese as well as flavored oatmeal that we purchased from a supply made available by our Rotary District 7475.
John, as well as Nutley Rotary President Dorothy Huey and husband James helped unload the boxes at the Nutley Family Service Bureau.
Accepting the donation are Peg Conca, Food Pantry manager, and newly appointed Executive Director Katherine Carmichael, Ms.Ed, MSW, LSW.
 
Nutley Rotary made a donation of adult non-skid socks to Mountainside Hospital, and baby socks to Clara Maass Hospital.
We are so happy to share a simple yet so important gift with the adults and babies of our community!
Nutley Rotary Service Project co-chairs Barbara Hirsch and JoAnn Scarpelli are pictured in the donation to Mountainside, and Nutley Rotary President Dorothy Huey joins them in the photo taken at Clara Maass.
