High Holy Day Food Drive Contributions are Trickling in—Don’t Forget Yours

Thank you to all who have donated to the High Holy Day Food Drive. In your worship service program for the High Holy Days, you received the familiar food drive envelope. If you can still find it, please return it with a check payable to Temple Beth El with “food drive” on the memo line. If you can’t find it, no worries: make your contribution online here and choose “High Holy Day Food Drive” as the donation type.

Currently we are on 70% toward our goal. Last year we raised over $14,000, and with a greater need this year, we want to raise over $15,000 to help Second Harvest Foodbank and our other partners.

Most of the funds we receive go to Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin. They have come to depend on our contribution each year, and we hate to fall short.

After the pandemic began, we made additional donations to support a variety of food pantries and emergency relief programs reaching different segments of the community: the Dane Sanctuary Coalition emergency food fund, the Latinx Consortium for Action Emergency Relief Fund, the Mount Zion Baptist Church food pantry, the Catholic Multicultural Center food pantry, and grocery boxes for Madison school families. These programs are still very much needed, and if we can we will support them as well.

So please give as generously as you can; any amount is greatly appreciated.
