Rotary Club Members and
Interact Club work our first
Pictured below are some of the fifteen North Plainfield Interact Club members who worked one of the two concession stands at Rutgers men's 11/20 basketball game. This was our first game under the new concessions management by Sodexo. There were a few little glitches (not by us) but we came through with flying colors. Our Interact kids were terrific!
Next game is December 6 - see schedule below - if you'd like to help out, drop us an email - RotaryPNP@verizon.net.

The Interact Club is hosting the Backpacks for Children Program at NPHS. This program collects food to put into backpacks that are given to children who do not have meals over the weekend. Students and teachers are asked to donate simple items such as mac’n’cheese or small cereal boxes. Boxes for donations are in every high school homeroom, and each homeroom teacher has a complete list of items suitable for the project.
