Please collect a bag after Rosh Hashanah services. The bags will have attached a list of items requested by each group. Please only contribute unexpired items and those items on the list. Expired items cannot be used. If you are unsure what to donate, non-perishable canned foods are best.
On the list of items on the bag, please circle your preferred organization. Or, you can circle “No Preference – Please Distribute as Needed” on your bag, and we’ll do the rest.
In response to member requests, you can make a monetary contribution instead to the organization of your choice. Monetary contributions allow the charities to buy exactly what’s needed at lower, wholesale prices and with a small environmental impact. If this is of interest to you, you can bring a check written to your preferred charity on the list, with Beth El Food Drive on the memo line.
All of the organizations are registered charities for tax purposes. For our Sanctuary project, checks can be to Congregation Beth El, with Sanctuary Project on the memo line. Or, donate at (
On Yom Kippur, our teens will receive your bag as you enter for services. A box will be available in the bag storage room for any checks.
Many people make this food drive a success each year. Our thanks go to Sudbury Farms for donating the bags again this year, to our teens helping in the collection, to our drivers delivering your contributions to each organization and, most importantly, to all of you for your generous contributions!
