Winter Social Action Update

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


A Report from Annette DeMarco
Social Action Committee Chairperson


Our WINTER CLOTHING DRIVE is up and running! Please bring clothing to the back of the social hall. We are collecting all sizes, from infant wear through adult sizes, in new or gently used condition. Oh, please do not include hangers. The donations are being brought to the Bergenfield Thrift Shop, which is run by the Council of Jewish Women... and they don't take hangers... who knew? The clothing will be collected through Sunday, January 17.

Why should the NFL have all the fun? So, Adas Emuno is getting in on the act and we're going to sponsor our very own SOUPER BOWL!! From now through Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 7), we will be collecting SOUP for the
Center for Food Action. It's just in time for the cold weather and it's the perfect comfort food! Please, then, pick up a can or a box of soup or soup mix whenever you do a food shop and bring to the small room at the entrance of the sanctuary. If each family brings two soup items, we can help to make a whole lot of people feel mmm­mmm warm, from the inside, out! (Note: please bag all items so we can transport easily. Thank you!)

Food donations that have been left at the temple were delivered to the
Center for Food Action, in time for the holidays. The CFA director, volunteers, and workers thanked us profusely for the bags of food, toiletries, etc. I pass their words to you, along with my own todah rabah. Our regular food collection is ongoing.

As we begin the new year, I wholeheartedly want to thank everyone who has supported the Social Action Committee's programs. Sometimes we ask for a lot and this congregation always comes through. You are amazing, wonderful, generous people. Wishing you all a new year filled with “good stuff”. With special regards, Annette.
