Corners of Our Fields Reminder

As is our custom at MCJC, the 5780 High Holy Days mark the start of our “Corners of Our Fields” food drive in conjunction with Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger.

This year we are collecting food for McHenry High School and personal care items for the Old Firehouse Assistance Center in Woodstock. The “Food for Thought” program at McHenry High School is “providing hope and dignity to children by discreetly supplying additional food to students in need.”

If you haven’t already, please pick up grocery bags in the foyer, and return the bag(s) on or shortly after Yom Kippur. These community agencies will be grateful for all donations. Check to be sure items are not near expiration dates. A list of highest need items will be stapled to the grocery bag, and we’ll update that list, if necessary, in the weekly e-nouncements.

Toddah Rabbah for your donations.
