CHFD Fill-the-Ambulance Food Drive a Resounding Success

When the Cleveland Heights Fire Department held a holiday Fill-the-Ambulance Food Drive to benefit Kosher Food Pantry and Greater Cleveland Food Bank, they were astounded by the generous donations collected in less than six hours. People donated hundreds of pounds of packaged foods and firefighters spent over $1,000 of on-the-spot cash contributions at Dave’s Market on Lee Road, where the food drive was held.

The kosher items were delivered to the Pantry the next day by Jason Zukerman and George Adcock, representing the Cleveland Heights station, and all the food was distributed with that week’s regular KFP distributions. Way to go — community helpers helping community helpers!

Chanukah Party Fun with Seniors

Senior residents in one of the buildings KFP delivers to were delighted by an on-site Chanukah party.  Delicious doughnuts, fruit, pretzels, and drinks were enjoyed while Chanukah songs filled the air. It was great to celebrate together in person again!

Fairmount Temple Students
Packed Chanukah Bags

Arranged by Fairmount Temple Religious School Middle School Coordinator Sam Kohn, 7th and 8th grade students helped pack Chanukah bags with candles, gelt, and cards for KFP to give out with food packages prior to Chanukah. Thank you so much for your assistance!

Fuchs Mizrachi School Students Made Cute Chanukah Cards 

FMS second graders colored Chanukah cards (and some students wrote sweet messages) which were included in KFP food packages, no doubt making recipients’ holidays even brighter. We appreciate your young artists, FMS!

Thank you again to these young volunteers!

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