Yom Kippur Food Drive 

Yom Kippur is, by far, the single largest day of the year that food pantries around the country receive donations. Temple of the High Country has long run a Yom Kippur Food Drive. We will be running one again this year. Participating is about living our Jewish faith through action on our holiest of holy days. It is about being involved in the larger community we live in.

The Rabbi and Board strongly encourage you to bring to Kol Nidre, or other Yom Kippur services, a full shopping bag of non-perishable food items. At least one bag per person attending. Feel free to bring even more. When shopping for the items please think about what YOU would like to eat. Important items to include are: Canned Tuna; Canned Chicken; Canned Beef Strew; Bean soups; canned or dried beans; Peanut Butter.

Please do not forget the infants and young children. They can use items such as: Infant formula; powdered milk; Baby Food Fruit; Hot Cereal Mixes and Oatmeal

In place of a bag, please feel free to bring a check made out to: Hunger and Health Coalition. The following is from the Coalition regarding how monetary donations are used:

A donation of $100 will provide one of the following:

· 12 boxes of food.
· 480 pounds of food.
· Food for 30 people.
· 77 prepared meals through the Food Recovery Program.
· 13 preschoolers with weekend snacks for 10 months.
· 53 snack bags to preschool children.
· $1,700 worth of medication.

TOHC Mission

Our mission is to be a spiritual, educational, and social home for our Jewish community and to enhance the lives of our congregants and community at large. As we embrace our Jewish traditions, we are able to support one another through times of sadness and joy as well as further the Jewish vision of worldwide justice and peace.

The Caring Community
The members of this committee are available to help our temple members in need.
We will provide occasional rides to Friday night services, doctors appointments and will help ill members with grocery shopping and other errands.
We will occasionally make shiva calls, hospital and home visits to those who are elderly or sick.

Since we are only volunteers, we cannot provide these services on a regular basis but will provide referrals to community agencies in the area when needed.

We will also make referrals for agencies that may be able to help you with a variety of other issues as well.

We are here to help you.
Please contact:
Marla Gentile - befit51@aol.com
Nancy Dennett - nd35252@appstate.edu
