Highlights from The Ark’s High Holiday Collection Drive
The impact of our High Holiday Collection Drive has been monumental, underscoring the generosity of the Chicagoland Jewish community. Over 6,000 bags packed with essential items were donated and 1,300 items were sent via our Amazon Wishlist, ensuring that The Ark’s kosher pantries in Chicago and Northbrook will remain stocked for the foreseeable future and can continue to provide much-needed relief and support to our clients.

If you’d like to launch an early winter pantry drive, please reach out to Dawn Lieberman, Director of Community Engagement and Programs, at email@example.com.
We are immensely grateful to the 60 participating synagogues, groups, and community organizations whose cumulative efforts were the driving force behind this achievement. Browse through a few snapshots of our collection drive partners, shoppers, and volunteers, each narrating a story of shared commitment and purpose.
We express our deep appreciation to the many synagogues that graciously hosted storage pods and collection bins for our drive. Their leadership brought together congregants and communities across Chicago and the suburbs, filling our pantries with four months’ supply of dried goods.
