Backpack Buddies updates

BACKPACK BUDDIES GOES METRO

 

CONGREGATION BETH SHALOM IS NOW 1 OF 15 SYNAGOGUES, CHURCHES AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS CURRENTLY FEEDING ALMOST 500 CHILDREN EACH WEEK.

 

BEGINNING IN NOVEMBER, WE WILL BE PROVIDING 100 WEEKEND MEALS TO CHILDREN AT 3 DIFFERENT TITLE1 SCHOOLS…KINGSLEY, MONTCLAIR AND WOODWARD.  WE ARE WORKING HARD TO GET OTHER ORGANIZATIONS TO ASSIST WITH MONTCLAIR AND WOODWARD AS THEY ARE THE MOST IN NEED OF  HELP.  EACH SCHOOL COULD PROBABLY USE UP TO 300 BACKPACKS WEEKLY.

 

WE NOW HAVE 4 TEAMS PACKING FOOD EACH SUNDAY…SISTERHOOD, MEN’S CLUB, THE RELIGIOUS SCHOOL AND THE GERO FAMILY COORDINATING JACOB’S MITZVAH PROJECT.

 

WE COULD STILL USE CONGREGANTS HELP IN 3 AREAS.  FIRST, YOUR FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS ALLOW US TO BUY FOOD FROM THE ATLANTA FOOD BANK AS WELL AS RETAIL ESTABLISHMENTS. SECOND, WE NEED YOU TO CONTINUE TO DONATE FOOD INTO THE BACKPACK BUDDIES’ BARREL LOCATED IN THE LOBBY OF THE SYNAGOGUE.  AND FINALLY, WE NEED ADDITIONAL VOLUNTEERS TO HELP US WITH DELIVERING FOOD TO  3 SCHOOLS ON WEDNESDAY OR  THURSDAY. 

 

IF YOU CAN SPARE ONE HOUR PER MONTH TO HELP WITH DELIVERIES, PLEASE CONTACT SAMRA ROBBINS  (912) 844-9127 OR RONALD ROBBINS (912)272-6245.

 

THANK YOU FOR MAKING BACKPACK BUDDIES A GREAT MITZVAH PROJECT FOR THE SYNAGOGUE AND FOR HELPING TO FEED THE CHILDREN IN OUR COMMUNITY.
