Our Souper Social Action!

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


A Report from Annette DeMarco
Social Action Committee Chairperson


We won the Souper Bowl with a score of 103 soup items collected!! This number included cans, microwavable cups, containers and cellophane wrapped soup mixes... all in a variety of shapes, sizes and flavors. A special thank you to everyone who "played" in our first ever Souper Bowl! A very, very special shout out to our religious school students and madrachim who helped raise the "score". I see a "Souper Bowl II" in our future....

Purim is coming, so in the true tradition of the holiday... let's fill a "community" Shalach Manot basket! When you attend the Purim service and festivities, please bring a nonperishable food item (or two or three) and place in the basket in the vestry room as you enter the sanctuary. Food can be brought on both days of the celebration (Sunday, March 20th and Wednesday, March 23rd). These donations as well as all food items collected through the end of March will be delivered to the JFNNJ (Jewish Federation of Northern NJ) for their March Mega Food Drive.

Thinking ahead... we will be collecting all leftover, unopened Passover food during the first three weeks in May. It will be brought to the Helping Hands Food Bank in Teaneck. A special box will be placed in the vestry for these donations.

Join Us!

Wednesday, March 9th the Social Action Committee met at 7:30 PM in the Social Hall. ­Our social action projects have been successful due to the incredible responses of our congregants, whenever called upon. In essence, you are all members of this committee! During this meeting members brought in new ideas, discussed the old ones and welcomed those who "never knew we existed" as a group. Couldn't attend? Just email your ideas to me. Thanks!

Thank you to all who donated to the Winter Clothing Drive. Items were brought to the Council of Jewish Women's thrift shop in Bergenfield.

The general food, household items and toiletries collection is ongoing.

Special regards,

Annette ­ Social Action Committee Chairperson
