Kol Tikvah Food Drive

The Kol Tikvah temple held a food drive Sunday, October 9. They collected an amazing amount of food (274 boxes)! Some of the activity is shown on the home page slide show. Carol and Herm Fischer coordinated the drive (Herm is the Pantry Board Vice Chairman). Samantha Duenas and Rabbi Jon Hanish provided leadership and support. A warm thank you to them and to all of the Kol Tikvah volunteers and workers.

Scout Troop 22 to Renovate Pantry Work Area

Josh Matalski, a member of Scout Troop 22, will manage an Eagle Scout project to renovate the sink and counter area used by the Pantry and Prince of Peace church. The Troop 22 scout masters have volunteered their time and carpentry skills to do the demolition, clean up, and installation of a new sink and food preparation area. Our thanks to Josh Matalski and to Troop 22 for their commitment to solving a long-standing need in a much used facility.
