Over 10 Tons of Food and Clothes Distributed

Rabbi Edery and Muto san together with Chabad volunteers drive up to Sendai three times a week to distribute food, clothes and necessary items to the people in the shelters and families in the affected areas. Every trip they rent a 1 ton truck and fill it up with goods to be distributed. Special thanks to the CEO of National Azabu, Mr. Sezaki and head manager Mr. Dale Toriumi, for their ongoing help in organizing food and clothes drives. They also put charity boxes for customers to help monetarily and encourage  their customers to take part in this important and crucial cause. The people in the shelters are incredibly thankful and appreciative of the dedication Rabbi Edery, Muto san and all the volunteers have for them.
