Maplewood Rotary Club has been active for almost 90 years. Our mission of "Service above self" has made us strive to give back to the community in many projects. Our newest project is "Socktober". We hope to gather sock donations from the Maplewood and South Orange communities and then distribute the socks to homeless shelters. One of these is Isaiah House in Orange, where we will be collaborating this fall in 2 ways. The first is Painting a Guest Room in September and the other will be a Spaghetti Dinner for the guests in November. We will prepare and serve a dinner as well as distribute PJs, books and socks to the guests.
