The Maplewood Rotary Club hosted a wonderful evening at Isaiah House in East Orange on Tuesday, October 29, 2019. The evening brought together members of Maplewood Rotary Club and guests at Isaiah House for this special event, which will hopefully become an annual event.   
We "rocked our socks off" by handing out socks, pajamas to the children and gift cards to the teenagers. Then we shared pizza, refreshments, snacks with residents at the Isaiah House. Thank you to everyone that donated socks at all the different drop off locations! We literally had a mountain of socks, over 2000 pairs collected during our "SOCKOBER DRIVE", including a great haul from Rotary member Ed Boffa, who motivated his Union High School Interact Club to collect 633 pairs! A special thanks to Ed and his students. 

It was a great night of "Service Above Self", and wonderful meeting the families that were so grateful for this small gesture of kindness from our communities.
