ENCINITAS, California–Andrew Hoffman is a congregant at my synagogue, Temple Solel.  Andrew Hoffman is a finalist in Major League Baseball and People magazine’s 2010 “All-Stars Among Us” national campaign, in conjunction with the MLB All-Star Game. The campaign is to recognize individuals who are serving their communities in extraordinary ways.

Andrew Hoffman works at  Jewish Family Service’s Hand Up Youth Food Pantry in San Diego, which distributes food to families in need. Two Sundays each month Hoffman leads teens in distributing food and hygiene items to hundreds of needy military families in San Diego.

Andrew Hoffman is an everyday hero, helping to create a family-friendly environment for our courageous military heroes and their families. As one military mom said, “This distribution is a blessing. Last week I had to choose between diapers and groceries. Now I don’t have to.”

Andrew Hoffman deserves your support.

Please go to this link, click on the San Diego Padres, and vote for Andrew Hoffman. The site says you can return and vote as many times as you want between now and June 20.

So, please vote and often.

A total of 30 “All-Stars,” one representing each MLB team, will attend and be honored at the All-Star Week and at the pre-game ceremony on July 13 in Anaheim, CA. One of the “All-Star Among Us” winners will also be featured in People magazine during the week of the All-Star game.

By the way, today (June 8th) is Andrew Hoffman’s birthday, now 25.  Let’s give him a BIG deserved birthday honor.
