Two Wayne congregations collect goods, funds for the needy

Shomrei Torah and Temple Beth Tikvah are sponsoring a High Holy Day non-perishable food and basic necessities drive for the less fortunate.

Donations will benefit the Wayne Interfaith Network and other local charities in Wayne Township. The shuls will be joining Conservative and Reform congregations throughout the United States in a national effort to fight hunger and help those less fortunate. (Shomrei Torah is Conservative and Beth Tikvah is Reform.)

Donations can be dropped off at either Wayne synagogue during the weekdays leading up to and between the holidays. Shomrei Torah is 30 Hinchman Ave., (973) 696-2500, and Temple Beth Tikvah is at 950 Preakness Ave., (973) 595-6565.

Non-expired, donated items should be regular size, not super size, and in non-glass containers. Checks payable to the Wayne Interfaith Network also are welcome. For more information, go to www.winfoodpantry.org.
