Thanksgiving is about three weeks away, and our Hebrew School children are undertaking a wonderful project to provide food for Thanksgiving for ten families in the case load of our adopted social worker Charlene Risgsbee at the Department of Children and Families. Students in each class have been asked to bring in a specific item and a cash contribution in order to create baskets of holiday food for each family. Families will also receive a gift card to Shaw's which will allow them to purchase a turkey and other perishables.
You can also help in this project by purchasing a grocery store gift card from the temple or by making a cash contribution. Ellen Davis is coordinating this project for the social action committee. If you want to help or have questions, please contact her (evenings) at 234-8891.
