Join Raleigh-Cary Jewish Family Services, along with many other Triangle organizations, in this food drive, sponsored by The Light House Project and benefiting Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. 

Deah Barakat, Yusor Abu-Salha and Razan Abu-Salha had big ideas for how they wanted to help the world. One of Deah’s last facebook posts was where he and Yusor were giving food and free dental supplies to the homeless. Razan was a regular at Raleigh’s Moore Square, where she too fed those in need and left personal notes for the recipients.

Last year a food drive was held to honor their service to the community. Donations translated into over 58,000 meals to North Carolinians in need
