The WECARE community outreach program operates a food pantry that provides approximately 3,500 bags of groceries each year to our neighbors in need regardless of race, religion, age, gender or nationality. We could not accomplish this important mitzvah if not for the generous donations we receive year round from caring individuals, organizations, schools, synagogues and businesses in our community. Thanks to United Way of Broward County, we are also able to distribute fresh produce to needy people through Project Lifeline.
"The ability to obtain enough food for an active, healthy life is the most basic of human needs"
Donations are greatly needed and appreciated to keep our shelves stocked so we can help the many men, women and children needing our services throughout the year. In 2014, WECARE provided enough free non-perishable food and fresh produce to prepare over 65,000 meals for our neighbors in need. In 2015, we are experiencing a 25% increase over prior year in the number of people seeking assistance from WECARE due primarily to the significant cuts in SNAP benefits aka food stamps.
WECARE also collects small toiletry items, provides free medical equipment loans including wheelchairs, walkers and canes, distributes hand-knitted items to nursing home residents, and collects eyeglasses and hearing aids that are sent to New Eyes for the Needy. Donations of toiletry items and medical equipment are very much appreciated.
