RU vs. Ohio Football Concessions Fundraiser

On September 24, 2011, members of EWB-USA Rutgers volunteered during the Rutgers vs. Ohio football game. A percentage of the profits will go to the Guatemala Committee for the post-implementation phase of the water supply project in Nueva Santa Caterina Ixtahuacan.

Football Concession Stand Fundraiser: RU vs. NCC

EWB-USA Rutgers ran a successful football concession stand fund raiser at High Point Solutions Stadium on September 1, 2011. Pretzels! Funnel Cakes! Roast Beef! Soda! Gatorade! Hot Dogs! Candy! Everything was sold to hungry football fans and EWB-USA Rutgers receives a portion of the income that will go to their international projects. 

The concession stand was a success because of the many volunteers from other organizations that helped EWB-USA Rutgers volunteers: Theta Tau, Phi Sigma Pi, and March Dimes. These organizations were major reasons why the concession stand was enjoyable and successful. Please visit their websites to learn more about them!

EWB-USA Rutgers + Summer + Rotary

Hi there, hopefully everyone's summer has been enjoyable and fruitful. As you know, we are always running, working and constantly focused even throughout the summer. This includes our focus on one recent undertaking: meeting with our local New Jersey Rotary Clubs of Rotary International! If you don't know of Rotary International, it is a great organization of service clubs, known as Rotary Clubs, located all over the world.

EWB-USA Rutgers would like to individually spotlight both the Paramus Rotary Club and Flemington Rotary Club. At each club, we met with and then presented for Rotarians. It turns out that both presentations were very successful in building bonds with our local New Jersey Rotary Clubs. Special thanks from EWB-USA Rutgers members Elizabeth Silagi, Ryan Kretch, Brian Goodacre and alumni Colin Warnick who all presented at either club.

Paramus Rotary ClubIn addition, a special thanks to Paramus Rotary Club for donating $2,000 to our Guatemala Project after our presentation in July, which came just in time before the Guatemala Project's Second Implementation Trip. We successfully implemented our Guatemala water supply project for the community of NSCI this trip and are awaiting start-up. To learn more, see the Guatemala page or the travel blog.

Thank you, Rotary International, you are awesome!
