Asbell School Snack Pack Project

This year Sisterhood is preparing 40 snack packs per month for Asbell School’s weekend feeding program.  We have provided nine items for these snack packs during September and October and will begin asking for the congregation’s assistance beginning in November.

Ideas for snacks include fruit cups, pudding cups, jerky, fig bars, granola bars, fruit bars, etc…

** No nuts

Please bring to Temple on Sunday mornings or Tuesday mornings, labeled ASBELL SCHOOL, and place in Judaica Shop area near the front office door.

Kosher Mile portion of the Scull Creek Trail

We will meet at 12:30 at the trail crossing at North Street, between Leverett and Gregg. Easy parking is at the North St. Mini Mart/Laundromat.

Fayetteville Parks and Recreation provides the trash bags and gloves. We will have hand sanitizer and a couple of rakes and grabbers. Please feel free to bring your own gloves, garden rakes and grabbers. Any adult or teen or wants to tackle the creek should wear appropriate footwear. Also, beware of poison ivy, so long sleeves, long pants, and closed toe shoes might be wise.

Thanks to all who can come out for an hour or so and help the TSRS in this wonderful mitzvah and community effort.
