[DONATION LINK] For the first time ever, TLS is hosting a fundraising Web-a-Thon. Although it’s only a week since many donated for a recent urgent cause via our website, we’re reaching out to our dedicated readers to assist us in helping this extremely worthy organization in Lakewood.
As we all know, the astronomical costs of making Pesach can break the budget even for many hard working breadwinners who manage to get by on their own, year-round.
With its finger on the pulse of Lakewood, The Lakewood Scoop strongly identifies with the pain and suffering of so many heads of households in the community, who have either lost their jobs, taken a severe pay cut or are reeling from other financial setbacks as a result of the spiraling economy.
We have therefore undertaken to host a three-week Web-a-Thon fundraiser, from now through Pesach, on behalf of Kupas Kimcha D’Pischa– Lakewood’s largest and most encompassing Pesach distribution fund administered by Tomchei Shabbos. Visitors to TLS are able to pledge or donate directly from our Web-a-Thon portal, 24 hours a day. (A fundraising thermometer has been set up on our home page, keeping all our visitors informed of the Web-a-Thon progress).
In addition to their regular sponsorship options, Kupas Kimcha D’Pischa is introducing a new Sponsor-a-Seder program, which provides donors of $118 and above the opportunity to underwrite a family’s entire Pesach Seder.
The first 5 Sedorim, were sponsored by TLS.
Kupas Kimcha D’Pischa provides some 500 families in our community with all Yom Tov food essentials, from wine and matzoh to fish, meat, poultry, potatoes, produce, canned goods and more. The size and scope of the Pesach distribution effectively makes Kupas Kimcha D’Pischa an organization onto itself, with its own staggering, half-million dollar budget.
Kupas Kimcha D’Pischa is 501(c)3 tax-deductible charity.
