Harvest Hope Food Bank:
Beth Shalom Synagogue Volunteers at Harvest Hope Food Bank
If you go to Harvest Hope on the last Thursday of the month from 5 to 7 p.m. you’ll find Beth Shalom volunteers waiting to serve those who need assistance in terms of food and related items to feed their families. The numbers seeking assistance varies monthly but the need increases greatly in times of a tough economy.
Families seeking assistance must meet established financial guidelines. The source of items received by Harvest Hope varies significantly depending on the season of the year and donations. Many entities in Richland and the surrounding counties are very generous in continuously trying to provide food to those in need. However, there never seems to be enough to satisfy the needs of those seeking help. Donations are always being sought.
One of the most satisfying aspects of our involvement with Harvest Hope Food Bank is experiencing the personal reward of helping others who are less fortunate. Who knows but by the grace of G-d that we might seek assistance from Harvest Hope Food Bank or a related entity.
Volunteers are always needed. If you are interested in volunteering or making a donation, please call Beth Shalom Synagogue (782-2500) for information. You will be glad you did. A minimal investment of your time will return significant personal rewards.
