Tzedakah from Canada
Tim and Courtney and their two children, Talan, 6, and Zach, 2, were vacationing at the beach in Volusia County from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. They called the Jerry Doliner Food Bank there and asked what was needed. Gloria Max, executive director of Jewish Federation of Volusia & Flagler counties, said they told her they wanted to teach their children that if they take them on a one-week vacation, they have to learn to give back to the community they are visiting.
"It was so refreshing to see their children carrying loads of food, going back to their car many times!" Max said. "What an example they are teaching their children!"
