Susan Miller has spear-headed the small ziplock bag of snacks and hygiene products for those in need. As an alternative to giving cash to people, the SAC is preparing bags that you can take from the synagogue foyer, The bags will be available this Sunday at the membership meeting. You can take one and give it to someone in need. We will also have a basket in the foyer for you to drop off any travel size items that you may have: soap, creams, toothpaste, shampoos etc. We are hoping to make this an on going mitzvah project.
If you like the idea , please consider helping. Thanks so much.
Next week we are going to the Redwood Empire Food Bank. The date is Wed.
Feb. 3rd. from 10:00-12:00. Please consider joining us either in the kitchen preparing food or packing produce.
