Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive Goes Virtual

Kesher, Pardes Jewish Day School’s parent organization, has launched its eighth annual Thanksgiving Food Drive in partnership with the Granada Primary School. While the look of the drive may be different, the urgency of providing the Thanksgiving food is just as critical this year.

Pardes families and friends are invited to go to Target online and purchase two of each food item listed on the registry and add one $10 target gift card. Click here for the link. The food will be delivered to Kesher volunteers who will organize the bags and prepare for them to be delivered to Granada Primary School, a local Title One school. The goal is that every family at the school can enjoy Thanksgiving dinner.

In previous years, Pardes families have had the opportunity to attend a school-wide event where they organized all the food, decorated food bags and made Thanksgiving cards. Due to school COVID-19 safety protocols, Kesher was unable to hold this event; however, they hope to return to a similar program in the future.

Orders can be placed until November 9th. Questions regarding the food drive can be directed to Kesher at
