Temple Emanu-El Food Drive – During this crisis, homeless people and those depending on foodbanks for their meals are especially at risk. Temple Emanu-El has had several successful food drives in the past few years and our Tikkun Olam team hopes that we can help again. Please bring any non-perishable food items to Temple between March 29 and April 9 – we’ve set up a donation box by the temple entrance so that you can bring donations without making contact with anyone. Food will be brought to House of MercyWe realize that you yourself may be running short on food, so please do what you can without hurting yourself.

Those seeking to give something other than money can look to the American Red Cross. There is a severe blood shortage because of a high number of blood drive cancellations during the outbreak, (reference: The New York Times). Healthy donors are urged to give blood, platelets, or AB plasma.
