An Act of Compassion at Second Harvest Food Bank

Josh Breakstone’s compassion for people served by the Second Harvest Food Bank did not end when his volunteer time there was finished in May.

A ninth-grade religious school student at Temple Emanuel in Winston-Salem, Josh was inspired to start his own Mitzvah project. It was a way for Josh to participate in the Jewish tradition known as Tikkun Olam (repairing the world).

He collected items that could not be purchased with food stamps (shampoo, deodorant, razors, lotions, shaving cream, soap, diapers, feminine products, cleaning supplies, paper towels, laundry detergent, etc.).

Josh’s compassionate actions bring him under the gigantic tent called Compassionate Winston-Salem. Won’t you join him?
