Shop til Poverty Drops: How Ahavas Tzedakah Fills the Carts for Thousands


Let’s Go Shopping

Imagine shopping where there are never any long lines, the prices are always great, and everything you buy comes with an eternal satisfaction guarantee. No, this is not a dream, this is your chance to impact the lives of thousands of local families in need by going shopping for them.

What will you buy?

Will you shop for the family who can’t afford to fill up their grocery wagons and stock their cupboards with essentials? Or the family who never visits the shoe or hat store because there is just no way they can pay that bill? Will you buy diapers or a pacifier? Containers or aluminum foil? It’s up to you.

Not everyone is as fortunate as us. When we need something, we just head over to the store and buy it. Simple, right? Well, not for everyone. Thousands of our friends and neighbors simply cannot afford to buy their most basic needs. Let’s join together and shop for those in need just like we shop for ourselves. It’s the best deal you’ve ever seen. 100% Eternal Satisfaction Guaranteed!

The entire community is going shopping for Ahavas Tzedakah! How? It’s simple…

When we go shopping for our families, we stop and think about those who cannot afford to shop, and we reach out to Ahavas Tzedakah and help. We may choose to sponsor a family for a year, or for a week, but no matter how much we give, we are bringing untold joy to a local family in need.

Ahavas Tzedakah provides much needed funding for basic necessities. Therefore, the Ahavas Tzedakah network encompasses dozens of stores across Lakewood. Way beyond groceries alone, shoe stores, clothing stores, Judaica stores and more are all part of the Ahavas Tzedakah network, and the families can choose where they need to shop and what they use the money for. In many cases, the children do not even realize they are beneficiaries of the organization.

A large focus at Ahavas Tzedakah is giving in a way that protects the dignity of the families. Thus, the founders of the organization worked to put a sophisticated credit card system into place. Working with a large credit card processing firm, Ahavas Tzedakah designed a credit card system with an actual card that looks very much like a regular credit card. This credit card works at all stores that are associated with the organization. You’ve likely stood in line behind someone using one of these cards and did not even realize it, since they are virtually unidentifiable.

Now more than ever, Ahavas Tzedakah is asking the community to come together to support your neighbor, your cousin, and your friend by supporting this organization. When you shop for yourself and you fill your cart with the essentials, remember those who cannot do the same. Your donation can make all the difference.
