Thank you for helping our community!
Last year, Adat Shalom families contributed to the 71,518 hours of volunteer service logged by Manna and helped move over 4 MILLION pounds of food. This is a great help to the 79,000 to 81,000 of Montgomery County residents who do not know where their next meal will come from
On the third Tuesday of the month, Adat Shalom members gather at Manna Food Center's Gaithersburg warehouse to pack 144, 192, or 240 boxes of non-perishable food, depending on Manna's food supply.
We need 8-10 families/groups (12 to 17 people). Filling, taping, and stacking the boxes of food takes an hour to an hour and a half. Families are welcome (children must be supervised). MCPS SSL hours credited. During the school year, we pack at 7 and in June/July/August, we start at 7:30.
Each family/group should sign up once -- 1 slot -- for each date they plan on coming AND indicate the number of people in the comment slot -- e.g. 1 adult/2 kids
ALSO, if you are interested in carpooling from the District or close in MoCo, please let me know (Rena - [email protected], 240.205.5940) as we have some folks who don't drive at night and would love a ride! Spread the good deeds!
Manna Food Center, 9311 Gaither Road, Gaithersburg. Off Shady Grove Road
