Tomchei Shabbos of Queens
Passover Food Deliveries
March 25, 2018
Can You Help Us on Sunday Morning?
  We need you to help ensure that people in Queens and beyond will have food at their Seders.  Please let me know if you (and your kids) can help for a couple of hours.
Here is the information:
As many of you know, on the Sunday before Passover a group of us assist Tomchei Shabbos of Queens in packing cars and distributing food to needy families. As you can tell from the attached Flyer (which has all the information), the goal is to provide food on March 25, 2018 to over 450 needy families. We need your help! Here is some additional information:
1. For Westchester volunteers, we are meeting in the YIS parking lot at 7:30 am . and driving down to 33-23 Union St. in Flushing. For those people who will meet us there you should arrive by 8:15. This gives us enough time to figure out the system which changes each year (e.g. a family of 4 gets 3 chickens etc.).
2. If we have a good showing we should be done by 12:15 but you can leave early if you cannot stay the entire time.
3. Kids can come but there is a lot of traffic and would recommend that this is for kids 11 and older. If you have younger kids, we can send you out to make deliveries instead of packing.

4. Please tell me if you think you can make it and if you know anyone else (from any shul or location) that can help. 

Last year we had a great turnout, and ensured a wonderful Passover for many people. They are relying on us in a big way. Let's do it again! Call with any questions.
