Teens make, deliver lunches to homeless


Teen JAM participants get ready to leave Congregation Kol Ami to deliver their lunch packages to the homeless. Teen JAM participants get ready to leave Congregation Kol Ami to deliver their lunch packages to the homeless. Participants in the Tampa JCC’s Teen JAM — Jewish Activism and Mitzvah — program made and delivered more than 150 sandwiches to the homeless in Tampa, with some of the teens getting a chance to talk to a man who explained how he became homeless and what he does to make it from day to day.

The encounter came during the Teen Jam program’s first community service event on Sunday, Sept. 18. It was held in conjunction with The Academy – the joint high school program of congregations Kol Ami and Beth Am.

More than 35 teens from both Tampa and Pinellas County met at Kol Ami, where they made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and packed lunches with crackers, fruit bars and water. After a short question and answer session, the group headed downtown to hand out lunches to the homeless.
