Please support our 5th and 6th graders in sponsoring LunchBox.  Help them prepare and serve a meal for our neighbors in need between 10:30 am - 1:15 pm, or donate either 3 lbs. all beef franks or 1 - 2 dozen bananas/pieces of fresh fruit/sandwich baggies of washed grapes.  Please contact event captain Michele Sinn
mishsinn41@gmail.com to let her know how you can assist. Tax deductible checks made out to “Vassar Temple” with "Community Tzedakah Fund" on the memo line also help. This is Vassar Temple’s final Lunch Box of the school year, so take the opportunity to support this life sustaining project!

March Tzedakah Benefits Meals on Wheels
Donations made in the tzedakah box by the stairs this month will benefit Meals on Wheels of Greater Poughkeepsie. This wonderful voluntary organization provides low cost meals to people living alone who are unable to prepare their own, thus providing them with the proper nutrition, and just as importantly, allowing the recipients to remain living in their own homes.
 
 
SCRIP costs you nothing but has a significant positive impact on temple finances.  We have cards for over 500 local and national retailers. Contact Sandra Mamis,
 
scrip@vassartemple.org or 914-456-3524.
