Autumn Food Drive for Holy Family Pantry

November 12th through November 26th, 2017

In honor of the upcoming autumn holidays, we’re excited to announce a joint effort led by Columbus KTC and Congregation Tifereth Israel to organize a drive for the Holy Family Food Pantry.

The drive will start on Friday, November 10th, the Buddhist Holiday of Lhabab Duchen, commemorating the Buddha’s Descent from Heaven. Please bring your donations to the 7 p.m. pubic talk by Lama Lodro Lhamo at the First Community Church, 1320 Cambridge Blvd in Upper Arlington.

Then, starting on Sunday, November 12th through November 26th, place your donations in plastic bins located in the Lower Social Hall at TIfereth Israel.

Our drive will honor both the Buddhist holiday of Lhabab Duchen and the national holiday, Thanksgiving, which is observed this year on Thursday, November 23rd.

Both these holidays provide us with the opportunity to give thanks, express gratitude and generate merit by supporting families living in the East Franklinton with donations of non-perishable food and toiletries. Your generosity will make a big difference for these moms, dads and kids!

The Holy Family Food Pantry requests items such as canned fruits and vegetables, canned or boxed juice, canned meat such as chicken or tuna, peanut butter, boxed crackers, and pasta as well as toiletries such as shampoo, deodorant, tooth paste, and baby diapers.

We are pleased to be joined in this effort by our hosts and friends in spiritual life at Congregation Tifereth Israel, where we have been conducting our weekly prayer and meditation services. We give thanks to them for helping us in our hour of need, and together we will help the families of East Franklinton.
