Chloe Lewin (pictured), a seventh grader at The Emery/Weiner School, collected more than $2,000 in food and cash donations to benefit the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center Meals on Wheels program. Her effort was part of her mitzvah project for her Bat Mitzvah. Meals on Wheels has a special meaning for Chloe because the organization helped her grandmother in the past. Knowing the pandemic made it even more difficult for some older adults to afford food and to get out of their homes to shop for groceries, Chloe decided it was the perfect opportunity to help. She reached out to her Bellaire neighbors, asking for donations of canned goods. The response was huge, and Chloe collected enough donations to fill her family’s SUV.
