Rotary club of New Berlin, what is Rotary, how do I volunteer, New Berlin Food PantrySorting and stocking to help the needy
Sporting their yellow "Rotarian At Work" safety vests, members of our club sort and stock food items at the New Berlin Food Pantry on Dec. 6. The food was collected by residents of the Weatherstone subdivision in New Berlin.
Brainchild of former homeowners association president (and now alderman) Dennis Horbinski, the Weatherstone food collection adds hundreds of pounds of food and other important items to the food pantry's shelves. This was the association's 30th annual collection and the second time members of the Rotary Club of New Berlin assisted with sorting and stocking.
Each item is reviewed to ensure it is not past its safe date, then shelved by type and expiration date. Each Wednesday, the New Berlin Food Pantry serves dozens of needy residents of Brookfield, Elm Grove and New Berlin.

Many thanks to the folks in Weatherstone for another huge collection and to our members for taking time out of their Saturday morning to help out.
