Emergency Food Drive
As the economy weakens the demand for food assistance from the Richmond Emergency Food Pantry continues to increase. We have been doing a great job raising food to help our neighbors, but we need to keep it up. Thanks to everyone who has contributed, and continues to contribute food to the neediest in our community. Breakfast cereal and peanut butter are still in highest demand. Let us all continue to make sure that no one in our community goes hungry because they cannot afford to feed themselves and their families.
When you come to synagogue, for religious school, to celebrate Shabbat or for an educational or social program, please bring some breakfast cereal or peanut butter. Let’s continue to share what we have by filling the red barrels in our lobby to overflowing to feed the hungry.
The Food Pantry also needs money to buy meat and poultry, which we cannot donate, because of health laws. If you would like to make a donation please leave it with Arlene in the Temple office. Make your checks payable to the Richmond Emergency Food Pantry.
