Social Action Summary

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

A Report from Annette DeMarco
Social Action Committee Chairperson

Neither cold, ice nor snow kept Adas Emuno congregants from banding together in order to reach out to those in need!  From the last issue of Kadima to now, here are some of the ways in which that took place:

Clothing Drive—We collected approximately 30 bags of clothing for children, women and men; thank you, thank you!  Cantor Nancy Beller-Krieger filled her car numerous times with these donations and had them picked up from her home by House of Blessing, which gives the clothes to anyone in need.  A sincere thank you to our Cantor for putting us in touch with this wonderful organization and for the "delivery service"!

Good Deeds Day
The Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey held a county wide food drive, culminating on Good Deeds Day, which our congregation was involved with.  We collected food and delivered it to the Federation's office in Paramus.  Thank you to all who donated, with special appreciation to Lauren Rowland and Richard Alicchio for their work on this project.  A "SUPER SPECIAL THANK YOU" to Hannah Scowden, who volunteered her time at the Federation's office on Good Deeds Day, helping to divide up food donations so that various food banks received them.  Good for you, Hannah; great job!!!!!  Many people did NOT go hungry because of your help!  We are sooooo very proud of you!!!  Oh, and thank you for bringing your mom, Sandy Zornek!

Please continue to bring nonperishable, unopened, unexpired food to the temple, to be delivered to the Center for Food Action in Englewood.  Apparently, the shelves are somewhat in need.

Soda can tabs continue to be collected for Ronald McDonald House. Happy springtime, everyone!
