Since 2015, Lakeside Congregation has taken on an ambitious social action project called "Blessings in Bags." We gather and pack backpacks full of food for local middle school students. These students qualify for free breakfast and hot lunch at school during the week. This project assures they also have food over the weekend. We pack on Sunday mornings and deliver to the middle school on Thursday mornings.
Todah Rabah and thank you to all who participate in this wonderful program! We hope that by packing backpacks every week, our students will see that others in our community are not as fortunate and are counting on us to ease their hunger. Let this gift of Tikkun Olam help to make every day Mitzvah Day.
If you or your family would like to sponsor a week of Blessings in Bags, please contact us.
