This Sunday I went to the Tanger Hillel at Brooklyn College (at which I’m a board member) to do our yearly Passover Deliveries to the Elderly.
Every year we get in different goods to deliver, thanks in part to the Met Council on Jewish Poverty, and this year we had a nice haul to spread around to those who needed it:
- Hand Matzah
- Machine Matzah
- Apple Juice
I think that covered it all.
Our deliveries ranged all over Brooklyn, using lists that are built on year after year, and went out to over 300 families.
I started off at the Hillel, helping organize the groups going out, and loading the proper packages into each volunteer vehicle.
Those that didn’t come with a vehicle were either paired up in a car (in case the driver couldn’t find parking) or remained at the Hillel to help load cars and pack more packages as needed.
As the list wound down, me and another volunteer went out in my car to tackle two routes and delivered to 16 families.
All in all a great Sunday of volunteering!
If you want to, it’s not too late to donate to the cause, and that can be done HERE.
