“The relationship between Temple Beth Shalom and Children’s Village goes back over 40 years!”
Thanks to donors like you, we provided nearly 500 complete Thanksgiving meals for our families, and dozens of additional turkeys to our strategic partners in the community this year. When time was running out to meet our goal, Temple Beth Shalom in Hasting-on-Hudson asked how much more we needed, and the next day a donation arrived that ensured all of our families who requested assistance would have a beautiful Thanksgiving meal. The Temple has been a valuable community partner for years.
“The relationship between Temple Beth Shalom and Children’s Village goes back over 40 years!” said Rabbi Edward Schecter, who has been at the Temple since the Thanksgiving drive began. “Our high school students would play sports and chess with residents of one of the cottages, and The Children’s Village kids would join us here at the synagogue for pizza on Wednesday nights. And the Turkey Drive has been such an important part of our friendship; may it continue for many years to come!”
Today, over 100 CV families are fed through the Temple’s work alone. We are so grateful for all of our local supporters. Special thanks to Morgan Stanley and The Masters School community, who donate and organize drives for Thanksgiving year after year. Thanks to the outpouring of support from our community, this Thanksgiving was yet another to be thankful for.
