Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center is in the midst of its annual Hunger Drive, which supports the Island Food Pantry. During the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur holidays the Hebrew Center distributed empty grocery bags, courtesy of Cronig’s, to all who attended services. Attached to each bag was a note requesting the bag be filled with nonperishable food items.
On Wednesday, Sept. 18, students from the religious school will deliver the donations to the Island Food Pantry. Armen Hanjian, the pantry coordinator, welcomes the generosity and calls the collection the largest donation received all year.
Call the Hebrew Center office at 508-693-0745 for more information.
