December 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
While we can’t come together in person as we have in the past for fun, food and a mitzvah, we can still do all three!!
On December 25, from 10 AM – 12 Noon, drop off:
1. Frozen, unbaked macaroni and cheese casseroles using the below recipe in a heavy foil pan (approx. 12×10) with a sturdy foil lid. Your assembled casserole should be in the freezer by the evening of December 23.
(All casseroles need to be the same recipe. The casseroles should be assembled, but not baked. Once cooled in the fridge, they should be covered securely with the sturdy foil lid and placed in the freezer, allowing 36 hours to freeze completely.)
2. New hats, gloves and scarves.
FUN: Enjoy making the casseroles. Consider a fun craft project, purchasing fabric to make no-sew scarves to donate. Shop for hats, scarves and gloves for all ages.
FOOD (& FUN): On December 25, drive thru the Boonshoft Center for Jewish Culture and Education (CJCE). JFS will take your donations of frozen casseroles of warm weather wear and provide you with snack bags and warm beverages.
MITZVAH: Help us feed and clothe the guests at St. Vincent de Paul’s shelters.
If you have any questions, please call Tara Feiner, 937-610-1555.
