Rotary is an international, humanitarian service organization made up of men and women from all walks of life. Founded in 1905, business and professional leaders from across the globe dedicate themselves through Rotary to truth, fairness, improved relations between people and world peace. With no political or governmental agendas, Rotary Clubs work autonomously to create innovative solutions to meet the needs of others in their local communities and throughout the world.

Chartered in 2001, The Voorhees Breakfast Rotary Club works with numerous community organizations – Voorhees Elementary and Middle Schools, Eastern High School, Voorhees Pediatric Center, Voorhees Relay for Life, Ronald McDonald House and The Cathedral Kitchen, to name a few – contributing their time and energies to countless community service projects including Thanksgiving baskets, dictionaries, school supplies, an annual Voorhees Spring Egg Hunt… and more. Internationally, the Club participates in the Polio Plus program targeting eradication of Polio worldwide; and lends support to an orphanage in Santo Domingo as well as clean water projects in developing nations.
