There are so many people who are in need of help especially through this unparalleled time. According to FRAC (Food Research & Action Center), “there has been an unprecedented rise in unemployment and food insecurity” due to the coronavirus pandemic. Alabama is listed in the group of states having the “highest food insecurity rates in the US.” Please consider donating food to the many in need of our help. We will be accepting non-perishable food items from September 18th through October 2nd. You may deliver the food any time Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM via the alley entrance. A Temple volunteer or employee can help unload and take the food inside for you.
Please make sure the items are within the date of expiration. Suggestions are canned fruits and vegetables, individual servings of fruit, peanut butter, jelly, pouches of pasta, bags or boxes of pasta and rice, etc. Please do not donate huge bags of rice. Try to donate plastic rather than glass as it weighs less and broken glass can be dangerous.

Our 10 – day campaign raises money for Collat Jewish Family Services, Greater Birmingham Ministries, and Family Promise from Erev Rosh Hashana through Yom Kippur. It provides these agencies with funds to assist their clients in the many needs they have. We have always been very generous in this campaign and the Tikkun Olam Committee is very grateful that we can help provide for our Jewish and non-Jewish neighbors. Our committee hopes you will help us make this the best year yet! L’Shana Tova
