Sign up now! On Saturday, October 24, TBC will be participating as a congregation in the 5th annual Stop Hunger Now packaging event in Wilton. Last year we packaged over 160,000 meals that were sent to Haiti. TBC was well represented by about 90 volunteers.

Don't forget that children 5 and older can help (our 5-year-olds last year had a fantastic time and really contributed!). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Don Weber at  mdweb27@me.com.  If you would like to support this event financially, you can send a check to TBC and note that it is for Stop Hunger Now; or contribute using our  online donation form and select "Stop Hunger Now/Tzedakah Fund."

Our goal is to package over 160,000 meals this year and raise $3500 as a Congregation that will fund 12,000 meals which will be sent to hungry children in developing countries. If you would like to support this event, you can send a check to TBC and note that it is for Stop Hunger Now. This year each meal costs $0.29 (an increase of 4 cents/meal) so $1.45 buys 5 meals, $15 buys 52 meals and $100 buys 345 meals -- still a really good deal.
JFS Life Transitions Workshops: Concerns & Issues Related to Job Loss

Wednesdays at 11:00 am.  A weekly support group for the unemployed is being held at the Stamford JFS office, 733 Summer Street, 6th Floor.  The group will provide a forum to discuss and explore the concerns and issues related to job loss and to find alternative solutions for career satisfaction. The group is a collaborative effort between JFS Counseling and Employment & Training Departments. To register or for more information, please contact Rebekah Kanefsky at 203-921-4161 or email at: rkanefsky@ctjfs.org

Don't Forget the Turnover Shop!  

Temple B'nai Chaim receives 60% of the proceeds from your donations to the Wilton Turnover Shop, a non-profit thrift shop located in the Village Market building in Wilton Center.

The Turnover shop is run entirely by volunteers and benefits the Wilton schools' PTA and local nursing and home care. If you are cleaning out your closets, the shop will accept seasonal clothing, house wares, small furniture and collectibles. For further information, please email consignments@templebnaichaim.org.
