Thanksgiving Food Collection

Friday, October 18, 2019 19 Tishrei 5780

All Day for 37 Days

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!

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

  • 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 grade—cans of cranberry sauce
  • 7th grade—gravy

Collection deadline is 10 am on Sunday, November 24. 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 8, 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/events/thanksgiving-baskets (note Temple Beth El Thanksgiving food drive) to help them buy turkeys, milk, and other perishable items.

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