Thank you to all our volunteers and donors who #UnleashedTheirAwesome for Caleb and Calder’s Awesome Foundation’s 6th Annual Mitzvah Day withTemple Beth Sholom Miami Beach.
Our volunteers, donors, & supporters lifted the spirits of 200 #ProjectUpStart families who received big bags of food, personal hygiene products, and loving cards of support! A record 85+ donors from around the country opened their hearts and wallets – which made a big difference given the rampant inflation and product availability difficulties. On the big day, our volunteers put their muscle and South Florida sweat into packing the bags into a big ‘ol U-Haul truck. Seeing kids helping kids is the most gratifying part, watching the joy of toddlers packing bags and passing their blessings onto those less fortunate.
In these tough times, food insecurity, the basic bread of life, is more acute than ever. Perhaps even more important is letting the families know that they count and they are loved.
Thanks to so many of you, the light shines through the darkness. Adventure, Laughter and Kindness ruled the day.
