THIS SUMMER, THERE WILL BE CHILDREN, TEENAGERS
AND ADULTS IN OUR COMMUNITY
THAT WILL NOT HAVE LUNCH.
THEY WILL GO HUNGRY.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
 
VASSAR TEMPLE INVITES YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN 
OUR ANNUAL PROTEIN PLENTY!! 2018 DRIVE
 
JUNE 1 - JUNE 30, 2018

 
For people of all ages, having protein during a meal can be both healthy and satisfying too.  Protein-rich meals fuel the brain and body, build muscle, strengthen the immune system, and give rise to a sense of energy, vitality and well-being.  As has been our tradition, this summer we would again like to stock the four pantries operated by the Community Action Partnership with protein based foods which they can distribute to children, families and adults of all ages in need of food.
 
How to help? During June, Vassar Temple invites you to send in a tax-deductible donation of any amount to the temple. At the end of the month, scrip will be used to purchase cases of peanut butter, canned tuna and other fish, canned chili and other canned meats. The supplies will then delivered to the Community Action Partnership for distribution to their food pantry sites in Poughkeepsie, Dover, Red Hook and Beacon.

100% of your donation will be used to purchase protein foods for our community. Please forward your donation to Vassar Temple. Please write your check to “VASSAR TEMPLE”. In the subject line, please write: “PROTEIN PLENTY”. 
 Money collected for Protein Plenty!! 2018 will be exchanged (100%) for scrip at the Temple, which benefits the Temple too.
 
PROTEIN PLENTY!! 2018.
AT VASSAR TEMPLE, WE CARE ABOUT HUNGER.
SEPTEMBER IS COMING SOON!! Volunteers needed to help with High Holiday services! We have openings for anyone interested in reading in English from Mishkan HaNefesh. If you're willing to participate in this year's services click here to send an email to David Hecht, Ritual Committee Chair. Thank you!
We have a full inventory of SCRIP for all of the local grocery stores
and numerous major retailers.  We can obtain cards for over 500 national stores.  To see the full list, visit
