Participation in the Community at Large

Organic Community Supported Agriculture 

Would you like to eat pesticide-free, organically grown produce?  Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is available from late spring until early fall for pick up on Thursdays.  The produce is delivered to a designated location within hours of being picked at Golden Earthworm Farm.  Golden Earthworm is a local farm in Jamesport on the north fork of eastern Long Island.   In addition to your share of produce, your membership in this CSA program includes a farm festival, recipes, weekly newsletters, a blog from Farmer Matt, vegetable information, and a personal connection with the Farm.  Check out Golden Earthworm Farm online at www.goldenearthworm.com.   For 2021, shares are extremely limited due to the pandemic.  For more information about the program, contact Linda Weiss at lindaw4181@gmail.com.

VOLUNTEERS URGENTLY NEEDED! Leftover produce is donated to local Hatzilu families in need, but drivers aren't always available.  Please help us perform this extremely important mitzvah by making deliveries on Thursday evenings.  Contact Linda Weiss for more information.

 "Stitch and Kvell"

If you knit or crochet, join other Midway volunteers and make a blanket for a child undergoing cancer treatments.  We work with a non-profit organization called We Care Blankets.  Donate (non-wool) yarn, learn to crochet or knit, and help a child keep warm inside and out.  Have fun and feel good knowing you’ve helped someone in need.  Our Crochet Club meets Mondays at 3:00PM in the MJC Zoom Room.  Everyone is welcome!  Contact Linda Weiss at lindaw4181@gmail.com or call 516-933-8280.                                                   

Support A Lone Soldier

Literacy Nassau

Approximately 250,000 adults in our country struggle to improve their writing, reading and speaking skills.  With just 15 hours of training, you can change people’s lives by teaching literacy skills for everyday living.  If you are interested, contact Linda Weiss at lindaw4181@gmail.com.

TANS (Tikkun Alliance of the North Shore) 

A consortium of Jewish congregations and community centers on Long Island which focus on projects designed to “repair the world” on the local level by addressing problems such as poverty, hunger and the environment.  We have had to change how projects are done during the pandemic, and have succeeded - just on a more limited scale.   Typically, TANS sponsors an annual Coat Drive in the late fall, collecting coats and winter clothing to distribute to those in need, as well as an annual "Dressy Dress Drive" in the spring, collecting prom dresses, accessories, and shoes for High School girls to help make their proms and other events memorable.  Another spring event is the "Pack It Up for Hatzilu" drive, where each TANS group collects something different that is typically not covered by WIC.  MJC's TANS group collects boxes of facial tissues.  In addition to donations, volunteers are needed to sort through and deliver donations at the end of each drive.  Contact Eleanor Blackman at 516-364-1235 or Nancy Kraut at nancykraut@aol.com for more information.

Hatzilu

A rescue organization that helps Jewish families on Long Island in desperate need of food. Hatzilu needs kosher, non-perishable foods as well as volunteers to deliver food packages to the poor and elderly.  Volunteers are needed to work in Hatzilu’s food warehouse.  Monetary donations are greatly appreciated!  For more information, please contact Linda Weiss at lindaw4181@gmail.com or Norm Weingart at normwein@aol.com. DUE TO THE PANDEMIC, HATZILU'S FAMILIES' NEEDS ARE EVEN GREATER - DONATIONS ARE WELCOME AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE FOR DROP OFF AT MIDWAY.
