The Rotary Club of Westfield, in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Morristown and General Needs veterans service organization, has been visiting and supporting veterans housed at the Hope for Veterans® Transitional Housing housing program on the campus of Lyons VA hospital. These veterans are in the process of recovering from homelessness.  The Hope for Veterans program, operated by Community Hope, provides transitional housing as well as services such as mental health therapy, access to employment and educational resources and placement in permanent housing for these men and women.
 
But they also need to know that our community has not forgotten their service to our country. The Rotary effort helps to communicate this in a tangible way. Each week, Rotary volunteers are delivering a special luncheon for 80 veterans each week as a way to brighten their day and tell them that we remember. The meals are prepared by local restaurants.
 
To support this effort and other programs to feed the less fortunate in our community, please CLICK  HERE and donate to the Westfield Rotary Club Foundation. Donations are especially welcome now because every dollar donated fighting hunger, up to $10,000 will be matched by a special gift from one Rotary member.
 
As One veteran said "OMG, someone didn't forget us with all this virus and stuff!"
 
We must not and will not forget our veterans.

Disadvantaged families are in crisis. With schools closed, the school lunches many students depend on are not available, and they aren’t receiving the “second lunch Tuesday” sandwiches Westfield schools have provided for many years. With this program on hold while our schools are closed, Westfield Rotarians are trying to fill this need.  Westfield Rotary is distributing food to families directly and through St Joseph’s Social Service Center/The Elizabeth Coalition. Some of the food collected  is shown in the photo below, but the need remains and grows daily.

Rotary District 7475, which includes the Rotary Club of Westfield and 82 other Rotary clubs in central and northern New Jersey, is donating 10 ventilators to hospitals in New Jersey. Three are going to Trinitas Hospital, and seven are going to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital .  This effort was spearheaded by Dr. D. Michael Hart, a longtime Westfield Rotarian and a past District Governor of Rotary.  Dr. Hart currently serves as Foundation Chairman of District 7475.  As a part of the effort, Rotary volunteers located refurbished ventilators which could be purchased in this environment, and arranged a grant proposal for approximately $100,000. This proposal was submitted to the Rotary Foundation which is supported by Rotarians throughout the world. The Rotary Foundation approved and funded the grant proposal in days, rather than the normal months required for study and approval.
