Each month, the MJCC and PJA communities collect items for different area organizations in Portland.

In October, the MJCC/PJA will collect Thanksgiving foods for Jewish Family and Child Service. Items may be dropped off in the blue bin in the MJCC Lobby near the Member Services Desk.

The Torah tells us, “When we eat and drink in celebration, we are obligated to feed the stranger, the orphan and the widow.”

Jewish Family & Child Service invites the community to  help people who are facing adversity feel more connected to their community. Continuing a 17-year tradition, JFCS will once again brighten the holiday season for needy individuals, families, Holocaust survivors and other seniors through the Thanksgiving Food Box Drive.
