of Belleville-Nutley KiwanisClub

By on October 20, 2015

Belleville, NJ – Joe Wojtecki, Clara Maass Medical Center’s assistant director of customer experience, was recently reappointed as President of the Belleville-Nutley Kiwanis Club – a local chapter of an international organization that focuses on changing the world by serving children, one child and one community at a time.

Kiwanis International recognizes that each community’s needs are different, so each Kiwanis Club is different. The Belleville-Nutley Kiwanis Club, adhering to the mission of serving children, does a lot of volunteer work for 1st Cerebral Palsy of New Jersey, the Belleville police department’s K-9 unit and Clara Maass Medical Center.

“Even though I live in Hawthorne as opposed to Belleville, I can still see the difference we make,” said Wojtecki. “I work at Clara Maass and 1st Cerebral Palsy of New Jersey is right across the street, so I am lucky enough to see the people that we help every day. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that we have brightened their days.”

As President, Wojtecki sets the direction and key areas of focus for the organization. This year’s key Belleville-Nutley Kiwanis Club events include a Thanksgiving basket giveaway, canned nuts drive, daffodil day at Clara Maass Medical Center, a 50-50 raffle fundraiser and a picnic for children with cerebral palsy.

“The members of our Kiwanis chapter make it easy to be President because we are all rowing in the same direction,” said Wojtecki. “We have great communication with each other, and we strive to keep benefitting the community as much as we can. I look forward to working with this great group of people for another year.”
