Brith Sholom breaks record of giving to the JFS Food Pantry

Brith Sholom did not let the pandemic stop them from taking care of their community. Forced to think out of the box by having its November food drive for Jewish Family Service’s Food Pantry in the parking lot instead of during an in-person meeting, members drove up and were greeted by Joe Wientrob, Brith Sholom’s president, and Dave Lesser, vice president. Brith Sholom’s Girl Scout Troop 538 helpers moved donations from cars into Wientrob’s van, filling it with food, very precious toilet paper, and toiletries.

Monetary giving also broke records for Brith Sholom. Between Bingo winners that chose to give their cash prizes to JFS, to members using some of their refunds from canceled in-person events, to just being generous, $627 was donated to help feed the community for Thanksgiving and beyond.
