Canned and Boxed Food Collection Drive
Between now and January 18th bring canned and boxed goods to BJBE and Caruso (on Sundays) to support the Moraine Township Food Pantry, one of the sites we will be visiting on BJBE’s 3rd annual MLK Community Day of Service. Collection containers are located in the Tzedakah Nook at Temple and at both entrances of Caruso on Sundays during Religious School. See the Collection List on MLK Community Day of Service page on the Website for specific donation requests.
BJBE is joining Moraine Township and local churches, synagogues, and community groups to provide bags of food monthly to our neighbors in need. One sponsor per month from our congregation will provide a bag of groceries for 5 families – a total of 5 bags at approximately $25 per bag. Sponsors are signing up now, and we’re looking for March, April and May volunteers. A great Mitzvah project for our kids – a great mitzvah from any of those who want to participate! Click on the link above for more information, and contact Laurie Weissler at firstname.lastname@example.org (847-921-6047) if you’d like to sponsor a month.
