Goodman Food Drive

All Day for 35 DaysCoat Room

A holiday meal is beyond the means of those who struggle to buy weekly groceries. Goodman Community Center is collecting food to help 3,500 families enjoy a Thanksgiving meal with their loved ones. Let’s all help them!

You can bring just one item, several items, or best of all, a whole flat of cans or boxes. We are collecting canned fruits and vegetables, cranberry sauce, broth, boxes of mac and cheese, boxes of stuffing, and aluminum roaster pans. Collection bins are in the coatroom.

TBE’s Jewish educational program is participating in a grade-level competition! The grade that brings the most of their item will be presented with a certificate for a tree planted in Israel.

4K & kindergarten—boxes of macaroni and cheese
1st grade—boxes of stuffing
2nd grade—aluminum roaster pans
3rd grade—cans of fruit
4th grade—cans of vegetables
5th grade—broth, any kind
6th—cans of cranberry sauce
7th grade—gravy

Collection deadline is 10 am on Sunday, November 18. Items will be counted that morning and then delivered to the Goodman Community Center’s Fritz Food Pantry. To find out which grade donated the most, join the Religious School Song Circle on December 2, where our Mitzvah Core students will announce the winning grade!

Don’t have time to shop? Goodman Community Center is also collecting monetary donations at www.goodmancenter.org (note Thanksgiving food drive) to help them buy turkeys and other perishable items.

Our participation in this food drive is a partnership of the TBE Social Action Committee and Religious School.
