Stop Hunger Now -
Save the date!
Saturday, October 22, TBC will be participating as a congregation in the 6th annual Stop Hunger Now packaging event in Wilton. Last year we packaged over 164,000 meals that were sent to Haiti. TBC was well represented by about 90 volunteers.
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, or contribute using our
and select "Stop Hunger Now/Tzedakah Fund." You may also send a check to TBC and note that it is for Stop Hunger Now. This year each meal costs $0.29, so $1.45 buys 5 meals, $15 buys 52 meals and $100 buys 345 meals.
The sign-up will be later in September and further details will be provided soon. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to support this event,
