LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Temple B’nai Abraham (TBA) Social Action Committee's recent collection of used children's books during Mitzvah Week was a huge success, according to TBA representatives.

As a result of this project, Jewish Family Services received 100 books for its reading program; A Safe Home received 60 books that were used for children for reading and for holiday gifts; and approximately 300 books were given to the Children's Book Pantry project of MEND Hunger Relief Network, which supports 20 food pantries in Essex County that provide critical support to families in need through food drives, logistics, storage and fundraising.

The Children's Book Pantry began at the food pantry of Our Lady of Sorrows Church in South Orange. Children's books are distributed to clients at the Our Lady of Sorrows food pantry as well as the Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges.
