HHD Food Drive
Central Reform Temple is hosting its 2017 food drive to benefit The Greater Boston Food Bank – ‘Everyone has a role in ending hunger.’ On Rosh Hashanah, recyclable grocery bags will be available for you to pick up and take home (these come to us compliments of our friend James Robinson and Whole Foods). During the Holy Days, please fill your grocery bag with desired foods & return it on Yom Kippur. With gratitude for your kind generosity to support our neighbors in need!
