The Rotary Club of Paramus Receives The Center for Hope and Safety’s 2021 Benefactor Award.
Center for Hope and Safety (formerly Shelter Our Sisters) is dedicated to assisting victims and survivors of domestic violence, and their children, by turning fear into safety, helplessness into strength, and isolation into hope.
The Paramus Rotary Club has supported Center for Hope and Safety for decades. Most recently, the club’s members came to the aid of CHS during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, springing into action to respond to the urgent needs of the organization. 
The Paramus Rotary Club also reached out to the Paramus Moms Facebook Page, and together filled a garage and several vans with food and PPE supplies to benefit CHS. 
Additionally thanks to the efforts of the Paramus Rotary Club, CHS received a freezer to stockpile food for the Safe House, their emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence. 
And finally, there was a sizable financial donation made by the Paramus Rotary Club from available end of year fundraising proceeds. 
From the Center of Hope and Safety…”Thank you, Paramus Rotary, for your generous donations, for spending hours shopping for food, for lugging endless bags of groceries to our Community Center, for donating clothes to children in need and for always showing a strong caring spirit. We appreciate the monetary donations, the gift cards, and all the meals from Popeye’s! Without your selfless efforts, CHS could not have made it successfully through the challenging pandemic year of 2020.
Paramus Rotary certainly lives up to the organization’s “service above self” motto. 
Deeply grateful for your work and tireless dedication, we are pleased to recognize the Paramus Rotary Club with the 2021 CHS Benefactor Award”.
