MAGAL students support local community and Pearlman Pantry


March 30, 2018

Each month, students in Temple Israel and Temple Shir Shalom’s collaborative religious school, the Meitin Alliance for Growth and Learning, participate in collecting food for the JFS Orlando Pearlman Food Pantry based on a fun theme.

The theme for the March collection was “birthday party” and included cake mix, frosting, sprinkles, and candles. The focus of this collection theme goes along with the MAGAL Mitzvah Day planned for April 8, during which students will assemble “Birthday in a Box” kits to donate to the Foundation for Foster Children in Winter Park. The kits will include the candles as well as birthday cards that students will make while the cake mix, frosting, and sprinkles will be donated to the Pearlman Food Pantry. Assembly of the kits will take place during the Bagels & Blocks “me and my grown-up” session that morning so that even the youngest children can participate. This local, student-led service project encourages students to focus on the community in which they live and learn about how they can help other kids in meaningful ways.
