PLEASE JOIN THE ANNUAL CAS HIGH HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE Last year, the Stamford Jewish Community donated 12,000 lbs of food to Person-to-Person for this worthy cause. We collected 300 bags - help us exceed that amount this year as the need is greater. For 20 years, the drive helps the efforts of Person-to-Person, a worthy charity offering financial support, emergency food and clothing assistance, summer programs, and college scholarship aid - all to help families break the cycle of poverty. This year, the need is greater than ever. Pick up a bag and a shopping list in the CAS lobby beginning September 16, fill it with canned goods, pasta, etc. and return to CAS by October 10.
