ZAGBA to Help Provide Thousands of Outreach Program Meals for Puerto Rico

Dear Friends,

As announced last week by email and at the Jashan/Gahambar event, ZAGBA Board has decided to work with the Outreach Program to sponsor packaged meals to the Puerto Rico survivors.

We, the Board are putting together a charity event on November 18, 2017 at the Temple Shalom Emeth, 16 Lexington St Burlington, MA 01803, from Noon to 4:30 pm (approx)., where the ZAGBA volunteers will be packing 10,000 meals.

A Big Thank You to all the generous donors who have already given/sent their donation checks.

ZAGBA Board is requesting you all to please help with donations and/or volunteer your physical help on Saturday-November 18th.

The Outreach Program will be providing help with all the supplies in exchange of  the collected donation amount.

ZAGBA has decided to raise $2500.00, which will sponsor 10,000 meals.

Date & Time: Saturday, November 18, 2017 from 12pm to 5pm. (Please note that this is the new date)

Venue: Temple Shalom Emeth, 16 Lexington St., Burlington, MA 01803.

Address to mail your donation:

Kaiomarz Dotivala, 11 Buckboard Dr, Westford, MA 01886.

Volunteers Needed:  In order to accomplish our meal packing goal, we will need about 36 Volunteers (Adults and accompanied Kids, who are atleast 10 +  in age).  Please sign up with Yasmin Bhumgara if you intend to help us at this event as a Volunteer. She will inform you which shifts are available and if you have time constraints we will do our best to allot you a shift of your choice.  The below timings are on or about, and a week before we will confirm to all volunteers the exact timing of their shift:

The Shifts are:

1st SHIFT:  12:00pm to 1:30pm

2nd SHIFT:  1:45pm to 3:15pm

3rd SHIFT:   3:30pm to 5:00pm

Depending on need, we may have a 4th shift with volunteers who are still around to help.

ZAGBA will provide water and Pizza.

All Volunteers: It is very important that you show up 30 minutes before your scheduled shift, if you have signed up to volunteer.  You need to be on time, as all the shifts have to work like clockwork in order to pack thousands of meals and finish the event by 5pm.

Any questions or if you want to volunteer, please reach out directly to Yasmin Bhumgara at: ybhumgara@gmail.com or text/call :781-858-1168.

Thank you all so much.

Best wishes,

ZAGBA Board
