On Wednesday, the Hillel Jewish Life Center held its Cook 4 A Friend volunteer event. This event brought Temple alumni and current students together to make meals for the Jewish elderly in the Philadelphia area. Cook 4 A Friend is held bi-weekly at the Hillel center to bring together alumni and support the local Jewish community.
The meals consisted of meatballs, vegetables, and pasta. While the meals were simple, the impact could be huge for an elderly person.
The volunteers showed up ready to work and pumped out hundreds of these meals to be packed and delivered to the homes of the Jewish elderly.
Every volunteer got a t-shirt to thank them for a great job showing up and helping the community.
