Thank you for a successful 44th Annual CBS Food Faire


The numbers are in and our Food Faire, co-chaired by Dev Berger and Kathy Zwern, was a financial and culinary success.

People who bought items took the time following the event to write us emails, send cards, and phone the office to say how much they appreciated the quality of the food, the dedication of the volunteers in the rain, and the organization of the distribution. So many people helped during the past months and we appreciate every person’s contribution. As one person said after volunteering, it was worthwhile not only financially, but in getting to make new friends and recreating our sense of community.

For the financial aspect of our 2nd Drive-Up Food Faire, the gross revenue was $28,743 compared to $27,826 last year. The expenses this year were $10,501 and last year they were $10,505. The fundraising revenue for this year was $18,242 and last year the net income was $17,321. So a big THANK YOU goes to members and friends who purchased items and to our sponsors, who help make this such a success.

The list of our sponsors is included one more time at the end of this email so that you can thank them when you visit their business or see them at services.

I’d like to share with you an opportunity to assist a congregant who is going through some very difficult medical issues. Many of you know Robin Gillett, who has coordinated our Turkey Drive every Thanksgiving for the Sierra Arden Food Closet and she has coordinated our volunteers at the Food Closet for years. Robin has had one serious surgery and has two more scheduled. Her two daughters have created a GoFundMe page and many of you have seen it on Facebook. If you have an opportunity, pleases click the link provided here and read about the updates her daughter’s are posting. If you are able to contribute financially, any amount will help her while she is unable to perform her massage business. To give Robin moral support, please put together some Thanksgiving food items for the Sierra Arden Food Closet and donate a frozen turkey. We are collecting them on Sunday mornings for the next two weeks. Robin has been and will continue to be a strong advocate for people who need help with food. Now we can help her. The link is here.

Thank you for all your do to support CBS with your time, talents and treasures… we are all part of the Terumah team.
