We made it to our goal of $18,000 just in time for Shabbat so we added a S_T_R_E_T_C_H goal of an additional 18%! Please help us break the new goal by the break-the-fast.
We are excited to share that this year's annual fundraiser is a bit different as we support both Food Gatherers and the Back Door Food Pantry. The current economic situation has led to challenges for both of these essential and codependent organizations, as soaring inflation rates not only affect their operational budgets but also put a squeeze on their clients and increase demand for their services overall.
Please help us reach our goal of raising $18,000 for each initiative during the High Holy Days, and together, we can make a significant difference in the lives of those facing food insecurity right here in our own community. These efforts will provide much-needed meals to our neighbors who are struggling right now! We are encouraging our generous donors to contribute to both causes while empowering them to choose where their heart lies as this is not a dueling fund drive and is instead a unique dual effort. Let's rally together and fight hunger as one!
