President of the Rotary Club of Hoboken Ryan Mitchell presented a check Tuesday to the Hoboken Charter School. The check, written for over $24K, was a result of rigorous fundraising efforts in the wake of the Sept. 6 fire.
After a fire engulfed the 713 Washington St. location where the K-8 charter program is schooled, two fundraisers were organized by the Rotary Club at 10th & Willow and The Turtle Club.
The students have been attending school in the St. Anne’s building in Jersey City Heights since Sept 18.
The proceeds were presented Tuesday at St. Anne’s to Elissa Brachfeld, President of the Friends of Hoboken Charter School. Principal Deidre Grode and other Hoboken Rotary members Joe Branco and Rory Chadwick were present.
