OKFB Supermarket Sweeps Email Script

Dear ________________,

I would like to ask for your help with an important mitzvah/fundraiser.

This coming Sunday morning, I will be doing a shopping spree in support of the Ottawa Kosher Food Bank as part of my synagogue’s Youth organization, USY.

The number of families in need has risen 25% since the pandemic started, and Passover is a particularly difficult time for the OKFB’s clients.

Any money I donate and raise will be matched by Cantor Green’s Discretionary Fund at KBI, so if you wouldn’t mind making a donation, we can make a real impact together. The deadline is this Wednesday at Noon so there’s enough time to finalize the participants’ gift cards.

You can make your donation at www.kehillatbethisrael.com/food-sweeps-donation. Please specify my name where it asks.

Thank you very much!
