BOXES OF BOUNTY

“I used to receive
packages from
Tomchei Shabbos. Now, I’m giving them.”

You would never imagine who is getting those packages. It could be your friend, your brother, your son. I know, because once, it was me.

For 11 months, after an unexpected series of events, my wife and I were scrounging for a few dollars to buy even the basics. There was no summer camp that year, no afikomen presents or shoes that weren't hand-me-downs. But there was Shabbos: challah, fresh fish, ice cream in the freezer, magazines, and so much more.

Baruch Hashem, we are no longer there. But each week, as I volunteer some of my time packing boxes for the families who are where I once was, there is a silent blessing on my lips for the giants who set this into motion, ensuring that every family in Lakewood is fed with dignity and abundance.
