Help Support Our Backpack Buddies Walkathon 2022
Sunday, November 20, 2022

Backpack Buddies is a nationwide volunteer effort that acts locally to fight food insecurity. Children from families who live at or near the federal poverty level are eligible for free or reduced breakfast and lunch on school days. Temple Shaaray Tefila helps provide families in our neighborhood with necessary weekend nourishment. Your donation will make a difference for a family facing food insecurity.
