JCS Alliance Performs Colorful & Creative Mitzvah
Despite the darkened sky and threatening rain, over 100 members of Jewish Community Services’ Alliance, a group of young professionals improving the community through collaboration and hands-on service, gathered at the JCS Kosher Food Bank (KFB) recently for a colorful and creative event. Participants ‘Spiced up the Food Bank’ by working with students of the MOCA Art Institute to paint canvases that now grace the walls of the facility. They also stocked shelves for clients who will be coming in over the next few weeks, especially those looking for items for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.
This mitzvah was a huge team effort led by Event Chairs Hinda Adler and Courtney Lenner; Committee members Amy Klosky, Dana Richards and Laura Sheridan; JCS Kosher Food Bank Chair Janice Lipton; and JCS Alliance Chairs Jonathan Raiffe, Chad Klosky and Scott Singer. “The face of the Food Bank will never be the same,” commented JCS Board Chair Shelley Niceley Groff. “It will be much more warm and lively and our clients will know there is a whole community out there that cares for them.”
