March 2019 CALENDAR (download
The 35th Annual
Walk Against Hunger is Saturday, April 27, 2019. Please note the change in
month! Loaves and Fishes has participated and has had teams sponsoring us
for a number of years. We have come to rely on the funds raised through the
walk and have set a goal of raising $30,000! We need your help more than
ever this year. Loaves and Fishes could benefit immensely by increasing the
number of teams, walkers and contributions raised through the Walk Against
Hunger. This is Loaves & Fishes' major fundraiser, and has become more
important as fewer funds become available for food programs. We truly need
you to join our effort.
We need your help!
WWe are still looking to form more teams. If you have not already
done so, please consider forming a team from your organization or finding
someone who would be willing to do so. Let us know by calling us at 524-1730
or writing us at 646 Prospect Ave., Hartford, CT 06105 or emailing us at
. We will send
you all the information and give you guidance along the way. Contact
Allison. If you or someone you know can't form a team but would like to walk
and sponsor us, please let us know. We will send you a registration form,
and you can walk as a member of the Loaves and Fishes Team. You don't have
to walk to be a walker - you can be a "walker in spirit"!
Lastly, if you can't walk but would like to sponsor a walker, send us a
check made out to Walk Against Hunger, and we will add your contribution to
the Loaves and Fishes Team. We are happy to help you however possible. Just
A loss for the Loaves & Fishes
We are sad to note the passing of a truly wonderful
man and amazing volunteer. Jerry Cohen passed away in January at the age of
98. Jerry had served with Beth Israel since our earliest days. He was always
extremely active with his group, and even picked up bread at Crown Market
for as long as he was able, which he brought with him on volunteer days.
Jerry was always willing to help with any volunteer task, would say a
wonderful blessing and then serve our clients. A determined Yankee's fan
usually wearing his baseball hat, he was always excellent to work with. We
appreciate all that Jerry did for our organization. He will be missed by
