(AJNews) – The Edmonton Jewish Community came together to donate and package 250 lunch bags for Edmonton’s vulnerable inner-city residents at The Bissell Centre.
The lunch, scheduled for October 22, is co-ordinated by Beth Israel Synagogue together with the generous support of Edmonton Community donors and volunteers, as well as Jewish Community Organizations including NCJWC Edmonton, Jewish Federation of Edmonton, Hillel, Na’amat Canada Edmonton, JNF Edmonton, Temple Beth Ora, Talmud Torah Society, Alberta Jewish Pipeline, Jewish Family Services, Beth Shalom and the Jewish Drop in Centre.
In addition to food, donations of essential items such as socks and gloves will be distributed to individuals and families in great need.
This year our volunteers greatly appreciated assistance from the enthusiastic and highly efficient Jewish Youth Volunteer Connect team (Jewish Federation of Edmonton), led by Mira Campbell.
The next Jewish Community lunch for the Inner City Pastoral Ministry at the Bissell Centre, co-ordinated by Beth Shalom, is scheduled for December 24.
Todah Raba to all the volunteers and donors for helping make a difference!
