Once again Temple Beth Torah's annual backpack drive was successful.
We filled 110 packs and delivered them to the elementary schools in Half Hollow Hills School District. This project is especially close to our hearts because it serves the children in need who live in our very own backyard. We want to thank the many congregants who participated with checks and gift cards. Kudos to Rabbi Weisenberg who rounded up an army of teens who helped with assembly, and thank you to those who loaded up their trunks and delivered to individual schools. A special shout out to our TBT maintenance guys who did all the schlepping. Everything had to be brought out to the parking lot so that we could mask and social distance. And of course, nothing happens with out our wonderful office staff.
