Help Wanted!

From the pages of Kadima, the newsletter of Congregation Adas Emuno:

A Report from Annette DeMarco
Social Action Committee Chairperson

At this time, most items donated by you have been delivered….  and appreciated!

Coats for women and children were brought to the Women's Rights Information Center, Englewood. Jackets and warm clothing were brought to Temple Beth El of Northern Valley, and from there, delivered to the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion Soup Kitchen at the New York Campus. Word came back that these items, especially the jackets, were immediately taken by people in need. Food donations were brought to the Center for Food Action. There were over ten bags of groceries with this last delivery. The Leonia Metropolitan Market also gave items for this food drive and we gratefully acknowledge this generous gesture. Donations made to Shelter Our Sisters will be delivered soon.

Our next project will take place on Sunday, January 27. We will be cooking for and serving a pasta and meatball dinner to folks who live at the shelter in Hackensack as well as walk-ins. We need to prepare 150 meals so we REALLY need YOUR help! Cooks will be needed, as well as people to help serve. Some of us will be meeting at Adas Emuno mid-afternoon in order to heat food left there and to be sure we “have everything”. Others will meet at the shelter at 4 PM to help serve. Please stay tuned for more details in an email coming soon. You can also contact me [Annette] at acheryl21 at gmail.com or call at 201-641-7496. Sign-up sheets will be available in the Social Hall, too.

Sincerest thanks to everyone who has been supporting this committee’s projects! And a special thank you to Richard Alicchio for helping with deliveries and acting as a live GPS! May the year of 2013 bring health, happiness, security and peace of mind to all.
