Mitzvah of the Month: September
Yom Kippur Food Drive

For September, we ask that you begin to stock up on non-perishable food to bring to the Yom Kippur Food Drive to help the Jewish Family Service Hand Up Food Pantry. In addition to food for people, we will also collect pet food for an animal shelter, snack food for an after-school program and toiletries for Monarch School and Rachel’s Women’s Center. If it is more convenient, you may donate a gift card to any of the local supermarkets. Gift cards may be dropped off at the truck or at the ticket table during Yom Kippur.

We should all have food set aside in our homes to be used in case of any emergency or natural disaster. Yom Kippur is a perfect time to donate the unexpired canned or packages of food and replace them with fresher items.

As you leave Rosh Hashanah services, you will receive a grocery bag as a reminder. Please bring your donations using that bag or any other on Yom Kippur. You can drive directly to the truck in the lower parking lot and our volunteers will help you unload your car.

If you will be away, you may bring your donations to the white barrel in the front office of the Temple beginning right after Rosh Hashanah, so that it may be weighed and included in our final count.

In 2018, we collected over 13,000 pounds of food from our congregation – that’s more than 6 1/2 tons of food, and we hope to do even better this year!
