JCRC Sponsors “Buy Israeli and Help the Homeless”

May 4, 2016 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit

The Jewish Community Relations Council is holding a community food drive during the month of May by collecting Israeli products and donating them to area homeless shelters.

Individuals are encouraged to purchase non-perishable Israeli food products and bring them to drop-off boxes at Israel- themed events during the month of May such as the Walk for Israel, Israel Independence Day festivals at Hillel and Akiva Day Schools, and the JCC Marwil Film Festival.  Drop-off boxes will also be available at Congregation Shaarey Zedek in Southfield, Temple Israel in West Bloomfield, Congregation Beth Shalom in Oak Park and Temple Beth El in Bloomfield Township.

Several varieties of Israeli food products are available for purchase at local retailers such as Johnny Pomodoro’s Market and Mediterranean Market in Farmington Hills, One Stop Kosher Market in Southfield, Babylon Ethnic Foods in West Bloomfield, and Kroger, Plum and Meijer markets.  Suggested Israeli products include crackers, wafers, coffee, tea, snack items, juices, soups and pudding mixes, dried fruits/nuts/seeds, candy and more. All purchased products should say “Made in Israel,” on the package.

A complete list of products, stores and events which are drop-off locations is available at detroitjcrc.org.  Monetary donations are also welcome, and will be used for bulk purchase of Israeli foods for donation to the shelters.  For more information about making a monetary donation, or about the Buy Israeli – Help the Homeless project, contact Sandy Lippitt, 248-642-2649, or email slippitt@jfmd.org
