Blessings in a Backpack (TBSIS Foundation Level Families)

Saturday, October 15 (Sponsored by the Richard Sharpstein Humanitarian Fund) 
Saturday, November 18
Sunday, February 11 (Mitzvah Day)

Join our Temple Beth Sholom Innovative School (TBSIS) families as we sort donated food and pack “backpacks” for elementary school children who qualify for free or reduced lunches at North Beach and Fienberg-Fisher elementary schools . These children often don't  have enough food to eat on the weekends or during school breaks, so the backpacks will help supplement. All backpacks will be assembled on Saturdays following Tot Shabbat and delivered the next Monday.

Co-Chairs: Marina Lubow and Tiffany Hurwitz. For more information call 305.538.7231.
