We did it!

Thank You MLK Day of Service Volunteers!

What an amazing day it was! Thank you to the hundreds of families and people of all ages who came together from the Shames JCC and the JCC MidWestchester (virtually and spiritually) to make 1350 Blizzard Boxes—that’s nearly 7000 items of food—more than double from last year and at a time when the need has never been greater.

Blizzard Boxes are meals of made up of nutritious, non-perishable food to help local families and seniors who rely on these boxes for sustenance—especially during a winter storm, or this year, while in quarantine.

With your help we are able to provide meals to these organizations: Bronx Jewish Community Council, Community Food Pantry of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow, Community Service Associates of Mt. Vernon, Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry, Hope Community Services, Interfaith Emergency Food Pantry of Pleasantville, Jewish Board of Child & Family Services of Hawthorne, Ossining Food Pantry, and Tarrytown Community Opportunity Center. If you would like to continue to help address food insecurity, please reach out to these organizations. And please let us know how you plan on continuing efforts throughout the year by filling out this survey. Or, if you know of anyone or any families that might benefit from Blizzard Boxes, please do not hesitate to reach out to Rabbi Ben Newman.

Also, thank you to the UJA-Federation NY who led the effort to coordinate events across New York in Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island and Westchester, bringing together thousands of volunteers that gave back to their communities. We are thrilled to be part of a community that strengthens and uplifts one another and do meaningful and inspiring work.

And thanks to everyone who shared photos of your families completing the Blizzard Boxes! Although we couldn’t get together in-person this year, it was clear the spirit remained as high as ever.
