Social Action September!
From the pages of Kadima, the newsletter of Congregation Adas Emuno
A Report from Annette DeMarco
Social Action Committee Chairperson
The first order of business for this article is to sincerely thank everyone in this wonderful congregation for the food donations. When these items were dropped off at the Center for Food Action, it was sad to see how desperately they were needed. Many of the shelves were crying out for food. We supplied about five bags of groceries. We can’t stop. Please continue to bring nonperishable food items to the temple.
At this time, we have two tentative dates to help the community:
Sunday, November 4, 2012 is Mitzvah Day: We will be working with Bonim Builders to paint a classroom at Children's Aid and Family Services in Paramus, from 8:30 AM to Noon. Anyone 12 and up is welcome to join in.
Sunday, January 27, 2013: We are planning to cook and serve dinner to residents and walk-ins at the shelter in Hackensack. This is through Family Promise of Bergen County. The time is late afternoon for about two hours. The minimum age limit is 14 years. We would need cooks and servers.
The next meeting for the Social Action Committee is set for Thursday, September 13, 2012 at 7:30 PM. New members are very welcome! Please note that most of the work is not done at the meetings.
If you cannot attend, don’t let that stop you from being a part of this group! Just email me at acheryl21 at gmail.com and we’ll “talk”!
