Holiday Tzedakah - Clubhouse 5 - Our tradition of tzedakah at this time of year is especially important to our “food insecure” friends and neighbors who count on the South County Outreach Pantry to meet their needs. As in the past, the Reform Temple will distribute grocery bags on Rosh Hashanah (10/2) and collect the filled bags on the Day of Yom Kippur (10/12). The pantry’s shelves are very low at this time of year. Let’s try to top last year’s totals of over 1000 pounds of items with your increased support of this vital program. The most needed items are cereals, pasta, pasta sauce, peanut butter, jelly and canned fish, meat and vegetables, and complimentary hotel soaps, shampoos, etc. Our Temple members can make a big difference in the lives of many. Thank you to all the volunteers who will help you unload your bags at the curb.
