BENEFITING: YAD EZRA
EVENT DATE: Oct 16, 2011
Yad Ezra provides food assistance to over 1500 families per month and has a committed and wonderful group of operators and volunteers. I first got involved in helping Yad Ezra a few years ago without truly understanding the meaning of the organization to my life. The $2500 I am hoping to raise will provide a year of holiday meals for 18 families. Your donation means a lot to the community:
$36.00 provides an individual with a nutritious food package lasting 2 weeks
$50.00 provides a couple with nutritious food lasting 2 weeks
$75.00 provides a family of 5 with nutritious food lasting up to 2 weeks
$100.00 provides a family of 8 with nutritious food lasting 2 weeks
$150.00 provides 3 small families with nutritious food lasting 10 days
$180.00 provides 4 small families with nutritious food lasting 10 days
My Mom's parents were custom Kosher caterers for over 2 decades and I am fundraising for Yad Ezra in honor of my Grandma, Mom and son Bryce - who is named for my Grandfather who passed away over 25 years ago.
Bryce and my Grandpa Hy (in photo with me) share the same generosity, selfless love and what appears to be humor. Growing up, I remember leaving his house with bags of food...a fond memory I am always reminded of when delivering food to those in need as part of volunteering at Yad Ezra.
Now, I feel great about helping Yad Ezra with its marketing communications as it continues to build awareness in the community. And engaging my kids as they learn about giving back to others in need.
Thank you for visiting & reading, you'll get a double thank you for donating to Yad Ezra. Remember...If you don't give back no one will like you.
