SOCIAL ACTION OPPORTUNITIES
The community needs our help more than ever this year.
Alameda County Community Food Bank
The food bank is providing 1 million pounds of food a week – almost double the volume of last year, feeding over 60,000 people a day. But the cost of food has gone up, and it costs almost $1,000,000 a month to buy this food – over triple last year’s spending.
The current crisis has created a huge increase in demand – a huge increase in the number of people who have been forced out of work. With schools closed, children who relied on school breakfast and lunch programs are going hungry.
Telegraph Food Pantry—Wednesdays 5:30 - 7:30pm
The current pandemic and economic crisis is particularly hard on poor people and low-income workers in service jobs. The need for food is growing. To help meet the need, we're operating the pantry every Wednesday, at least through the end of 2020. The work is easy, kids over 10 are welcome to help, and our clients really appreciate our assistance. For more information, please contact Allyce Kimerling at Allycek@hotmail.com or (510) 435-1270.
Help Fight Voter Suppression in Other States
Join other Sinai members and the RAC in a nonpartisan campaign to increase voter turnout in communities targeted by voter suppression tactics. It is essential that these voters know the importance of voting and where, when and how to do it.
