KFP Contributes Items to Kentucky Tornado Victims

When Kosher Food Pantry Director of Operations and Logistics, Lenny Glazer, heard about a unique opportunity to do a chesed (a kind deed) for people suddenly in need, he didn’t hesitate. Mario Innocenzi, owner of Mario’s Barber Shop in Parma, advertised on the radio that he was collecting food and supplies to take to Mayfield, Kentucky, after a recent catastrophic tornado devastated that town and several neighboring towns. Lenny quickly got permission to donate cartons of non-perishable canned goods and other products to Mario’s collection. 

With the help of Mendel Friedman, KFP Assistant Pantry Manager, Lenny loaded up the KFP truck and dropped off the donations at Mario’s shop. “Contributing to this effort,” Lenny commented, “displayed true Tikun Olam, repairing the world, like it says right on the Kosher Food Pantry logo.” 

Kudos to Lenny and Mendel! We’re proud of your thoughtful initiative and efforts to help others. 

The Cleveland Kosher Food Pantry was established over 40 years ago by Director Devorah Alevsky’s parents, Rabbi and Rebbetzin Zalman and Shulamit Kazen, as part of their efforts to help Russian Jews settle in Cleveland through the Semach Sedek Russian Immigrant Aid Society (RIAS).

The Cleveland Kosher Food Pantry Advisory Board is co-chaired by Muriel Weber and Chuck Whitehill.

Concert is free, but tickets to attend in-person are required and donations are encouraged. To reserve and/or donate, you may link to:
