Women Get Ready, Get Set and SHOP to Feed the Hungry!
About the Event
Ladies from the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County’s Dorothy P. Seaman Department of Women’s Philanthropy joined PJ Library® moms and grandmas on January 21 for a fast-paced “Supermarket Sweep” at Winn Dixie in the Del Mar Shopping Center in Boca Raton.
Twenty-five women competed in the scavenger hunt-type race to the checkout line to help local families in need, knowing the items they purchased would be donated to the Jacobson Family Food Pantry at JFS. Caught up in the race and the cause, they gathered over 300 pounds of food for the Pantry!
The women also heard from event co-chair Patti Jacobs and local PJ Library Chair Ilene Wohlgemuth. Cindy Orbach Nimhauser from JFS explained the importance of the “foodraiser” for the community. Special thanks to Winn Dixie for hosting this very special morning.
Another exciting “Supermarket Sweep” is being scheduled. Call 561.852.6080 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
