The Skylands Rotary Club spearheaded efforts to deliver 35 Thanksgiving family holiday meals to less fortunate families. These families were identified with the help of municipal and public school officials. Netcong Borough Police Department delivered the meals. Pierre Kernizan of Concerned Community Partners generously provided fundings to support 20 meals.
In addition, the Rotary Club donated $1,000 to the Waterloo Neighborhood Pantry to help subsidize 75 family holiday meals.
“It’s really satisfying to coordinate these groups together to support needy families in our community during the holidays,” said Skylands Rotary Club Vice President Bob Hathaway.
