Thoreau Food Program

Temple Beth El members had a fun time last fall delivering food to families whose children attend Thoreau or Lincoln Elementary Schools. You have a chance to join us this spring when Temple Beth El will provide the volunteers for the month of May.

Vic and Sue Levy will join other TBE volunteer drivers at 8:30 am on Friday, May 13 and Friday, May 27. Each of the 50–70 families enrolled in the program will have two dry-goods boxes (each 10 to 15 lbs.) delivered to their homes every other Friday. Five or six volunteer drivers will gather at Westminster Church, 4100 Nakoma Rd., to receive the food and information on their prearranged delivery routes. We expect each route to take about one hour to deliver.

We are very thankful to have a group that cares about the Temple Beth El neighborhood and school to join us with this effort. Each car should be able to hold up to 16 boxes in the trunk and back seat, so an SUV is helpful but not necessary. You can sign up as a single driver, but it is helpful to bring a friend to help with navigation and schlepping.

If you can help us deliver food, please tell us what day or days you can come, using the sign-up link below. If two people are signing up using a single car, enter just one driver's name and enter a quantity of two when the second screen appears. If you have any questions, please contact Vic Levy at 608-273-4527.

Sign up here.
