perform a mitzvah this thanksgiving
Congregation B’nai Israel has partnered with Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church for 39 years to provide a Thanksgiving feast for members of our community. Our neighbors will be invited to Ebenezer Church on Tuesday, November 22 to pick up everything needed for a bountiful holiday meal.
There are many ways for our CBI family to participate in this event including donating food or harvest baskets, sponsoring a table, donating a meal, baking cookies, hosting a neighborhood collection, or volunteering your time. Last year's event helped feed over 300 individuals and families. Let's do it again this year!
Community service hours are available for students. Scroll down to learn more.
help make a difference
We are collecting the following non-perishable food items at CBI to donate to hundreds of families in our community:
Mashed potato mix, canned cranberry sauce, canned vegetables, canned sweet potatoes, stuffing mix, cornbread mix, juice boxes, individually wrapped cakes and cookies, applesauce (no glass please) and Halloween candy (no chocolate please)
Please drop off your donations in the bins in CBI’s Admin Circle now - 11/15. NCECE families can bring them to school the week of 11/7-11/11, and children will be visiting the bins the week of 11/14 to drop of their donations with their teachers.
Host a Neighborhood Food Drive
A great way to help us collect non-perishable food items for our initiative is to host a Neighborhood Food Drive. Simply set up a box in your neighborhood to collect donations and invite your friends and neighbors to participate. We will supply you with a flyer and sample letter that you can use to spread the word. Plus, students can earn community service hours for their efforts.
Please contact Minda Shaiman if you are interested in hosting a Neighborhood Food Drive and/or for community service hours.
