Every week, Temple Beth Orr members help sort the food donations by their members as part of the Yom Kippur drive to stock the Rabbi Gross Food Closet, which serves approximately 100 needy families per month.

“Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who donates so generously to this effort,” said  Susan Feinberg, Food Closet Committee Chair. “There is a definite need in the community that we strive to fill.” 

Donations of food and tzedakah are collected throughout the year. Volunteers are also welcome to pack bags for distribution. For more information on how to donate or volunteer, please contact Susan Feinberg at susan.feinberg@gmail.com.
