Assemble a Passover Package for a family in need
High costs of food and other economic challenges make these days leading up to Pesach incredibly difficult for Jewish families in need. Households including unemployed parents and those trying to climb out of debt, single mothers who’ve already been struggling to cover their most minimal daily needs like food, clothing and utilities throughout the year, trying to shop for holiday necessities is an impossible task. The backlash of covid may seem like it’s fading into the background but it has caused thousands of previously stable families to fall below the poverty line, unable to buy groceries. Pesach, the holiday of freedom, becomes an extended time of stress and despair. Please help a family in need by contributing a Passover Package.
Each package should include the following:
-A box of matzah
-A bottle of Kedem Grape Juice
-6 pieces of fresh fruit
-1 bag of potatoes
-1 can of macaroons
Packages can be dropped of from April 1-8 to:
B’nai Torah Congregation – Boca Raton
6261 SW 18th St
Boca Raton, FL 33433

Help PBSO – Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and The Legacy Closet
Pre-pandemic, Palm Beach County ranked #2 in Florida for children living in spaces not designed for human habitation – spaces like a car, garage or a backyard shed. More than two years into the pandemic, concerns around youth homelessness are growing, as more families face hardship. Often runaway and homeless youth go unreported – they couch-surf and fly under the radar of the child welfare system just enough to become “invisible.” TLC and our partners want to make sure that these children are visible and receive their basic hygiene needs as well as a journal for their mental health.
Please make a bag of hope for the homeless youth in Palm Beach County
Each bag should include:
-Bristle Hair Brushes
-Small Journals/pen or pencil
