Established in 2001, the award recognizes traits in the Rotary creed – to encourage and foster the ideal of service and service above self.
Schlanger is founder of the Civil Legal Advice and Referral Office (CLARO) Westchester Chapter. CLARO provides legal service to people who have been sued by debt collectors and can’t afford to hire a lawyer.
