For over two decades, our congregation has provided and delivered meals on Thanksgiving Day to individuals and families who are home bound.
We need your help with the Mitzvah of providing meals to those who would otherwise not have a special meal on that day. Our limited number of meal delivery volunteer positions typically “sell out,” so don’t forget to register to reserve your spot! Families including children of all ages are encouraged to participate in this mitzvah. There are three ways in which you can participate in this year’s project:
Give Tzedakah: The dinners we provide cost $10 per meal. They are prepared by the Sprout’s Farmers Market on the north east corner of Tatum and Cactus. The more Tzedakah we collect for meals, the more we will be able to provide.
Deliver Meals: Volunteers are asked to arrive at the Sprout’s Farmers Market (north east corner of Tatum/Cactus) any time between 7:30AM – 8:00AM on Thanksgiving morning. We will be ready with meals. You will be provided the addresses for your deliveries at that time. To be eligible to be assigned a delivery route, you must provide a cell phone number at which we can reach you on Thanksgiving morning.
Bake: We supplement the delivered meals with fresh, homemade desserts provided by CBI congregants. Please drop off desserts between 9:30AM and 10:30AM on Sunday, November 18th to the kitchen entrance on the west side parking lot. If necessary, you may drop off desserts before that date and time at the CBI receptionist, with label for Thanksgiving meals. If possible, please cut desserts into single portions.
We look forward to sharing in another wonderful Thanksgiving Mitzvah Project with all of you!
