Annual Food Drive:
Beit Haverim members and guests gathered 508 lbs of food during our High Holiday Food Drive. We are so pleased to be able to contribute to the food needs of our neighbors. Thanks to everyone who donated.
Thanksgiving Basket Drive:
Once again this year, Beit Haverim helped gather food for Thanksgiving baskets collected by Jewish Family & Child Services so that 150 families would be able to have an abundant Thanksgiving dinner. Last year, we collected boxes of stuffing mix. This year, we collected packets of turkey gravy mix. We are please to announce that we surpassed our goal by collecting 162 packets of gravy mix. Just wait till next year!
Last year, students in our Religious School rolled up their sleeves, put on their plastic gloves and worked hard to make sandwiches for hungrty homeless people. The children then bagged the sandwiches with an apple to make a nice meal. A couple of wonderful school moms took the sandwiches right downtown to deliver them in time to be handed out for dinners. We will do so again this year, with the help of Religious School moms and helpful students.
