Sam's bar mitzvah food drive

Start Date: 02/21/19

Dear Friends and Family,

I am reaching out to you to ask for your support with my bar mitzvah project. For my project, I have been volunteering at different places that provide warm meals for those in need, such as Temple Sholom"s Monday meal. With your help, we can do more.

I am hosting a virtual food drive. No need to collect cans and boxes. With a donation of any amount, you can help provide more fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy and proteins to those in need, including 1 in 6 children who face food insecurity. Thanks to the Food Depository’s buying power where $1 can help provide 3 meals, you can make an immediate impact! Every dollar raised through this virtual food drive will be used to buy nutritious food for our community.

The number 18 is significant in judaism because it symbolizes "chai" or "life." That is why I set a goal of raising $1800 for The Greater Chicago Food Depository. Thank you for helping me with this project.
