We are proud to announce that within a few days of launching the Shaarey Zedek Tikun Olam Initiative Everyone Deserves Breakfast, we reached and exceeded our goal to raise $1800 to supply 930 meals toward 1JustCity's program Just A Warm Sleep (JAWS). The campaign was closed on Monday, February 22 -- just 65 hours after it began, and a cheque in the amount of $3756.20 was presented to 1JustCity on Wednesday.

Todah Rabah, Thank you, to our dedicated Tikun Olam Committee:  Holly Harris (Chair), Frank Hechter, Fanny Levy, Libby Broder, Dr. Rena Secter Elbaze (Staff)

Everyone Deserves to Eat Breakfast – An initiative of Shaarey Zedek Tikun Olam Initiative to raise funds to provide 30 breakfasts for each day of March, 2021 – 930 meals ($1800). The campaign raised $3756.20.

100% of funds raised went to 1JustCity – an organization in West Broadway that hosts 30 guests overnight during the cold winter months and feeds them dinner and breakfast through their Program Just A Warm Sleep (JAWS). Funds that were raised above the campaign goal were provided to the JAWS program to cover other expenses to help Winnipeg’s homeless population.

An initiative of Congregation Shaarey Zedek’s Tikun Olam Committee – social action to help repair the world.
