foodHigh Holy Day Food Drive

As we enjoy the abundance around us, we remember our neighbors who are struggling to put food on their table. During the High Holy Days, we encourage everyone to donate food by handing out bags on Rosh Hashanah with a list of needed items from our local food bank. Bags full of food donations are then returned on Yom Kippur and delivered to the Community Center of Northern Westchester. Our 2014 Food Drive collected over 1,577 pounds of food and we look forward to collecting even more in 2015.
