Mayumi Rubin-Saika, Chief of Service, and her committee are organizing 
the Holiday Meal to prepare for this amazing event where 
300-400 meals are served. There is a preparation and set-up shift on 
Friday, December 11 while the actual meal will be served on Saturday, 
December 12th from 12:30 pm – 3:00 pm. Our goal this year is to 
surpass 15,000 pounds of donated food and funds.

Here is how you can help: We are in the most need of canned goods, 
prepared food, and donations for the toiletry drive. Any extra 
Thanksgiving ingredients lying in your cabinets would make a great 
contribution to the meal. Please consider sending your student to school 
with a few cans to drop off at the bins located outside of the 
leadership office in the main building.

The following video and photo links demonstrate the magnitude and impact 
of the meal, if you have not been a part of it before.
