Thank you to all who contributed cash, groceries or Safeway gift cards to the “Alternative Food Bank” project at the end of October. Numerous grocery-filled bags plus $1800 in gift cards were provided for food-insecure immigrant families, who are vulnerable and wary of using government-funded food banks and resource centers.
Congregation Beth Shalom generously served as the collection site for our donations.
Our Immigrant Justice Action Team will be collecting your donations again in January or February, 2020. Watch bulletins in early 2020 for more information.
