Mandy’s dream has been realized for 18 years. A young lady saw a need and hoped we would fulfill her dream in her memory. To date we have made nearly 700,000 sandwiches.
We are indebted to our loyal volunteers who have come weekly for 18 years. We thank our Bar/Bat Mitzvah students who chose Mandy’s dream as their mitzvah project.
We have met so many dedicated children from Girl Scout troops, Boy Scout troops, National Honor Society and Students Concerned for the Needy as volunteers.
The highlight of 2019 was when Mandy’s roommate and close friend from Columbia University, Dr. Danielle Novetsky Friedman brought her daughter and about 12 of her friends from New York City to volunteer at the Feeding Program as her Bat Mitzvah mitzvah project. Danielle named her daughter in memory of Mandy and wanted Micole Amanda to see what her name represents. We don’t think Mandy ever dreamt this would happen.
