This morning, Vassar Temple caught wind of an immediate need for food donations on behalf of the students at Morse Elementary School in Poughkeepsie. It seems as though a large number of families associated with the school lack adequate food year round. With the December holiday break at hand, it was anticipated that many students would lack access to school-based breakfasts and lunches. The school, which houses its own food pantry, was in need of donations!

This morning at Temple, our marvelous teens Edison D’Orio and Tara Lerman helped bag canned and nonperishable foods that you, Vassar Temple members, had generously donated in the recent weeks to our VT CAN JAM bin. Cereals, lentils, soups, pastas, juices and more ~~ amazing!! Together we loaded up a car full of bags. Tomorrow the food will be delivered to the Morse School — just in time for the winter break. Thank you Vassar Temple.
