JCA ANNUAL FOOD COLLECTION AT THE HADLEY STOP & SHOP
Thursday, April 19, Friday, April 20, and Sunday, April 22
We’re very pleased that many JCA members have already signed up for two-hour slots collecting donated food items to help stock the Amherst Survival Center’s Food Pantry. We set up on the sidewalk outside of Stop & Shop and politely remind shoppers that we are collecting that day for the Survival Center if they’d like to buy extra item(s) while in the store to donate. There are still slots available and we hope you’ll consider signing up for this important, fun, family friendly Tikkun Olam effort. Questions? Contact Harry Hahn at firstname.lastname@example.org
