Over the course of this terrible pandemic so many people in our community have truly risen to the occasion.
When Alyssa Grunstein was contacted by her uncle to help bake 1,100 cookies single wrapped for the staff and front-line workers at the seven sites under CIUSSS West Central Montreal -Donald Berman Maimonides, Donald Berman Jewish Eldercare, Mount Sinai, Saint Margaret, Saint Andrew, Father Dowd and Henri Bradet – her natural instinct was to agree.
“That is a lot of cookies to bake for one person,” said her husband Yair Meyers.
With two posts by Alyssa, the couple were able to obtain over 800 cookies. “We realized that we can do this weekly,” said Yair.
With the help of master of all trades Judah Aspler, they came up with a snappy flyer. Now they are trying to get as many bakers as possible to bake for this beautiful initiative.
The group is called Operation Feel the Love. “We drop off the box at the security desk at each location and there is a person on site that represents us to handle the distribution to the workers,” he explains.
Yair wanted to personally thank Councillor David Tordjman and Shiri Tamam who he considers as essential volunteers with the group
“I would like to try and get as many bakers as possible,” said Yair. “ I think there is an entire market of bakers from the non- Jewish community who could love to help with this.”
