Community Outreach

Overview - Macon Outreach

Macon Outreach is greatly in need of non-perishable food donations and are collected year round in a bin on a cart in the hallway near the Chapel. Items such as canned fish and beans, peanut butter, macaroni & cheese, applesauce, canned fruits and vegetables, rice and pastas are all especially helpful. Please help contribute to this Tikun Olam effort by bringing a can with you on your way to services, and/or religious school.

Thank you to all of the dedicated CSI and TBI volunteers who help serve lunch to those in need at Macon Outreach (Mulberry Methodist) on the third Thursday of each month from 10:45 am - noon. If you are interested in participating, please contact David Ilan. You can call the CSI secretary for David's contact information.


For the last 20 years conservative synagogues have made Operation Isaiah a part of their High Holiday observations.
Inspired by Isaiah's words in the Yom Kippur Haftorah, "Share your bread with the hungry", we bring non perishable foods to synagogue on Yom Kippur.

Receptacles for your donations will be located in the lobbies, and the food collected will stock the shelves at Macon Outreach at

Those of us who are able are also encouraged to mail a check to:

Members of CSI donated over 217 pounds of groceries over Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. All of the non-perishable cans, boxes and jars of food were donated to the pantry at the Macon Outreach Pantry at Mulberry Methodist Church.
Yasher Koach to our members who participated in this amazing effort of Tikkun Olam.
