Jamie Zipper is having her Bat Mitzvah next week and for her Mitzvah Project, BHH Food Drive, she has brought in 1133 pounds of food. She gave a letter to her neighbors with a yellow bag with the BHH logo on the bag. Jamie enlisted a few of her friends to help. "I couldn't have done it without them." said Jamie. The Dr. and Mrs. Zipper joined Jamie and one of her helpers to unload all of these items from their cars. They helped weight them and put them into the sorting bins.
