Our Thoughtful Thursdays
team meets today at 10 a.m. to assemble bags of food and household items for the 70 Brightpoint Head Start children who attend class at the Temple.
Thoughtful Thursdays News:
In October, Thoughtful Thursdays bags focused on fresh fruit for our Brightpoint Head Start children. In November, the Jewish community’s social action program will provide each of the 70 families with a 10- to 12-pound turkey for Thanksgiving, cooking instructions, and trimmings.
Our “turkey project” grew out of our efforts the past several years during which we gave away eight turkeys through a drawing among the families. This year, a Temple member who wishes to remain anonymous paid for 35 turkeys, hoping to inspire others to support the effort. We are seeking donations of $18 each from 35 people to help us purchase enough turkeys for all the families. Please make your check payable to “CAV – The Temple,” indicate that your donation is for turkeys, and send to the Temple at 5200 Old Mill Road, Fort Wayne, IN 46807.
