The B'nai B'rith Great Lakes Region's Project H.O.P.E. (Helping Our People Everywhere) Passover Food distribution event held on Sunday, March 17, was a big success. Volunteers filled 100 baskets with food items and paper goods and delivered them to seniors and individuals in need.
B'nai B'rith had a lot of help during this year's Project H.O.P.E. including young professionals and teens.
Project H.O.P.E. is a community action project whose major goal is the collection and distribution of food packages to poor and elderly Jews during Passover. Many Jews who cannot afford special holiday foods depend on B'nai B'rith members to provide matzoh and the other Passover staples. To these people the remembrance is often as special as the needed food. Project H.O.P.E. works with the community family service agencies and local Jewish social services and with B'nai B'rith members and synagogue volunteers. Jewish organizations provide the lists of people who need packages and the facilities for collecting, storing, and packing the food.
