US Chesed and Gift Purim Collection
Date Uploaded: 
Thursday 2nd March 2017

Project Chesed is delighted to announce that this Purim we are again working with Gift to collect food for families in need.

We ask you to donate your surplus Mishloach Manot – lots of us get far more nosh than we need at Purim. But this is also a great time to empty your cupboards and donate other food you might have before Pesach - healthy non-snack food items such as tinned food, pulses, rice, pasta etcetera. GIFT will store it and distribute it to the families they support after Pesach. Your food donations are helping feed over 2000 people in the Jewish community.

The shuls below are the ones who have already told us they are participating in this project, so please either take your food to your local shul or you can drop it to one of the locations detailed on this flyer. Please contact your local shul if you would like to know their collection times/dates.
