A local church is doing more than their part to help those in need.

Beth Israel 's congregation collected more food for the local food bank than ever before.

Officials gave each family a paper bag to fill up with a list of food items on it. They took the bag home at Rosh Hashanah and return it on Yom Kippur.

Within the 10 days over 60 families donated the most food the food bank has ever collected.
