February 21, 2021 - February 28, 2021, All Day
Temple Beth-El is a proud partner of The Food Bank Network of Somerset County as that organization provides food and essentials to people at risk in our community. The need is great right now. We are again collecting donations of food and money to help support the good and important work of The Food Bank.
Drop-off food donations at the temple from February 21 to 28, or make a monetary donation by selecting “Food Bank” in the drop down on this donation form. We will forward all monetary donations in full to The Food Bank Network. (On February 21, volunteers will be on hand to collect the food between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. during the Purim bag pickup.)
Remember, our donations make an immeasurable impact by helping families in need. Your generosity has always been overwhelming and we thank you for your ongoing consideration. Contact David Kornberg, TBD Food Drive Coordinator, should you have any questions about this drive.
The mission of The Food Bank Network is to distribute food and to provide other basic human needs to those less fortunate in our community in a manner which recognizes and advances self worth and human dignity. Their method of distributing this food is through three food pantries, located in Somerville, Bound Brook, and North Plainfield, and a warehouse in Bridgewater.
