Joint Purim project focuses on donating food to those in need

In recognition of Hadassah’s centennial year and the spirit of Purim, the Tampa Ameet Chapter and Young Israel of Tampa-Chabad are sponsoring a Purim project that will allow participants to honor their friends and family while donating food directly to those in need. The project is instead of making Purim baskets.

There are three levels of giving. Centennial sponsorships are available for $100. Donations made at this level will be used to purchase food items to donate to families in need through the Tampa JCC Food Bank. For each donation of $10, a gift of food will be sent with a card indicating in whose honor the gift is sent.

Donors can choose if they want their food gifts to go to U.S. or Israeli soldiers, the elderly or needy people in the local community. A donation of $3 provides a Seudah in a box. This donation will provide a meal for a family of 4 to enjoy for the Seudah (Feast) of Purim.

For more information, to place orders, or to volunteer to help, contact Meral at (813) 412-7032 or Chana at (813) 375-9799.

The deadline for orders and donations is Thursday, March1.
