Moriah Performs Chanukah Chesed

Moriah was buzzing with chesed projects this Chanukah!

The early childhood made holiday cards in class for community first responders. Then, early childhood families delivered the cards, as well as doughnuts, to the Englewood Ambulance Corp, the Englewood police station and to the Englewood Fire Department. The students and parents thanked them for their service, wished them a happy holiday and thanked them for working on Christmas. The kids all loved getting to meet the first responders. Moriah received this letter from the Englewood Ambulance Corp:

“On behalf of all of the EMTs and Paramedics working the overnight shift tonight here at Englewood Hospital EMS, I want to thank the Moriah students for the thoughtful cards and donuts they dropped off this evening. Most of us were out on calls when they must have stopped by to drop them off so we all did not have the opportunity to thank them individually. Please pass along our thanks to each and every one of them.” Joshua Hartman, tour chief/paramedic at Englewood Health.

The middle school packed 500 weekend snack pack bags for the Center for Food Action. The packs are given to kids on the free/reduced breakfast/lunch program at school to help “fill the gap” over the weekend since they may be at risk for hunger at home. The students were really impressive and were eager to pack as many as they could! It was the perfect opportunity to reinforce the concept of giving to those less fortunate in a season where there is so much receiving. Moriah received this response from Center for Food Action:

“It is important to make children aware of those struggling and let them know families in our community need our help. Thank you for your efforts to make this event possible and the generosity of the Moriah School. Look forward to partnering in 2020 to give local families a brighter future!” Lori Oliff, Weekend Snack Pack program coordinator at Center For Food Action.
