Volunteer Opportunity Food Banks 

From Red Bank Rotarian Ellen Korpar who heads up the D7505 Disaster Relief Efforts
 
 
Good afternoon fellow Rotarians:
 
I have been in touch with Joe Galeta and Ed Conover at DHS Office of Emergency Management.  There is a current need for volunteers to assist with packing Crisis Relief packages for families faced with a shortage of food as a result of schools being closed or jobs closed or jobs lost.  The need has gone up double from normal need and this is expected to increase over the next few weeks.  I assisted at Fulfill (the Monmouth Ocean foodbank) yesterday and they said they have used half of their inventory in the past two weeks; this is normally their 6 week supply.  
 
Bill, would you please provide this information to District 7505.  I also ask that you cc me ( ellen.korpar@gmail.com) on the emails and ask that if anybody is volunteering that they let me know their hours.  I will relay this information to the state as volunteer hours are tracked during a disaster declaration and organizations and government are able to receive assistance based on the hours.
 
Here is the information the the food banks and their needs.
 
Beginning, Monday, March 23rd, volunteers are needed to pack emergency boxes:
 
CFBNJ- Hillside (31 Evans Terminal, Hillside, NJ) 
 
20 volunteers are needed at each of two shifts during the week days (40 total per day) from  9 am -11 am and 1 pm -3 pm.
 
While two groups of 10 would be ideal for each shift, we are happy to welcome individuals and supplement with our staff.
 
Please coordinate these volunteers with Faye Kuhn at fkuhn@cfbnj.org.  Information needed includes date/shift time/number of volunteers.

Rotary Activities Suspended until further notice

Dear members,
 
Given the concern of the Corona virus Covid-19, we have to be very cautious and be proactive.
The health of our members is our most important concern.
Unnecessary public contacts should be avoided. This is a New Jersey State directive regarding COVID- 19 (See Moorestown Township Guidelines). 
 
All Moorestown schools and public parks are now closed. 
 
Considering also that our club has many vulnerable senior members, suspending our club meetings and activities is the right thing to do at this time.
 
For our senior members, don't hesitate to ask for help.  Especially later, when it's our turn to get in the "European situation". It's just a matter of time.
 
Be there for each other. 
 
Stay healthy and take care,
 
 
 
In Rotary Service
Ben Stammen
President
Moorestown Breakfast Rotary Club

Jeff Young Cleanup

Last weekend the Moorestown Rotary Breakfast Club had members volunteer time to clean the Jeff Young Memorial Park in honor of the upcoming Veterans Day. The Club adopted the memorial park several years ago, and have involved the Boys Scouts to help thank those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to their country. The nine-acre Memorial Park was named after Sgt Jeff Young, a US Marine and local Moorestown resident who was killed in 1983 in a terrorist bombing of the U.S. Marine Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon. " It has been 36 years ago when 241 Marines gave their lives in defending the United States, and the Rotary Club is pleased to give Service above Self to help remember, said past President Scott Aschoff."
