54,000. That’s the number of people our food pantries have fed so far this year. Each and every Sunday, at the Temple Campus and at OPCC in Santa Monica, we feed hundreds of the most needy in our city. It has become a tradition for us to donate food to our food pantries during the High Holy Days season. Last year’s drive for tuna and peanut butter was our most successful in our history—we collected enough tuna and peanut butter to stock our Temple Campus Food Pantry for an entire year. This year we’re trying something different. This year we’re not asking you to donate food. We’re not asking you to donate money. We’re asking you to donate time—one Sunday.
You see, we can have all the food in the world at our food pantries, but unless we have enough volunteers on a Sunday morning to distribute it, it’s useless. Our food pantries only work because Temple members, just like you, donate two hours of their time—they show up. That’s all it takes to make our food pantries run and continue to feed tens of thousands of hungry people every year.
Give us one Sunday. Commit to showing up at either our Temple Campus or Santa Monica OPCC Food Pantries one Sunday in the next year—it’s worth more than any other donation you can make, and it just might change your life.
