Save the Date!
 
While we cannot at this point plan on gathering in person for our annual May fundraising event, our Fundraising Committee is working hard and has exciting news: on Saturday evening, May 22nd, it will be an honor to have nationally known comedian Todd Glass deliver a unique comedy presentation tailored just for TKA! Todd has appeared many times on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Tosh.0 (8 episodes), The Daily Show, Conan O’Brien, and Lights Out with David Spade. 
 
We will also have a cash raffle, as well as a silent auction using an app similar to the one we used in conjunction with our Aces Chai event a few years ago, which was very popular with many of you. If there is something special that you would like to contribute to the auction, e-mail committee chairman Jason Gold at vballjmg@aol.com
 
One thing that makes TKA so special is our sense of community, so let’s plan on spending a wonderful virtual evening together on May 22nd. More details to come…stay tuned!

Relay for Life
It's that time of year again - sort of. We had all hoped for Relay for Life at West Bloomfield High School on June 5. Unfortunately it looks like an in-person Relay will still not be a good idea, although there may be a different kind of event on that day. Meanwhile, Team Kol Ami is gearing up so we're ready whenever. If you would like to sign up to join the team or to make a donation, please click Donate for Life .

For more information, please contact Lisa Redmond at itslisatime@gmail.com . Cancer didn't take a break during the pandemic, so neither can we.

Community Food Pantry
Important: Community Pantry still vitally important!
                           
Temple Kol Ami's Social Action Committee has a new partner for our weekly Food Pantry. Metro Food Rescue www.metrofoodrescue.com is now the primary provider of rescued food for our “neighbors.” We continue to provide free food packages to people in need. Food packages are distributed in the Temple parking lot by appointment using health precautions while protecting the dignity and confidentiality for those who participate.
 
Although we live in an affluent area, we have neighbors and friends experiencing significant hardship that are often overlook. We do not want anyone to go without, so, please tell anyone that you know who food may have needs to go to  tinyurl.com/tkacfp and for their food pick up time.  
 
We are in need of more volunteers.
