Welcome to the Voorhees Breakfast Rotary Club!
We are an active service club that conducts charitable service projects in Voorhees, South Jersey and, as part of Rotary International, across the globe. Locally, we are one of the 45 clubs of Rotary District 7640, which covers the six southern counties of New Jersey.
Our club is made up of people from all walks of life, professions and businesses that believe in giving back to our community.
If you believe in community service and want to participate in innovative programs that help children and families then we hope you will consider joining us. We invite you to stop by a Thursday morning meeting to meet us (no obligation of course) and get a feel for our projects.

Founded in 1905, Rotary is the oldest and largest international humanitarian service organization. There are over 1.3 million Rotarians across the world. Rotary clubs have no political or governmental agendas. We believe in “Service Above Self” and work to meet the needs of others in our local.
