Shake Out Hunger: 3 simple steps

  1. Bring a box of beans, pasta or rice to the Megillah reading. (Think noisy!!)  
  2. Gently use it as a graggor.
  3. Place the box in the bins in the lobby after the Megillah reading.   
  4. All donations support our local non-denominational food pantry at Our Lady of Mercy in Hicksville.
