The Redwood Empire is having its annual fundraiser, Empty Bowls, on Saturday April 30th.  They need volunteers for all shifts from morning til evening.   Should be a wonderful event.  Want to join Susan Miller and me?  If you are interested please call Helen Myers at the food bank.  523-7900×143.
SAY’s Dream Center is up and running.  They are having tours with a light lunch.  The next one  is Wed. April 27th at 12:00-1:00.  The Dream Center is our neighbor and it would be wonderful if members took a tour to see this amazing new facilty.   To make a reservation please go to their website at  https://www.saysc.org/events/calendar/  Think about going with a friend.
JFCS continues to need food for the growing number of individuals and families that need a little extra food.  We have been doing a wonderful job filling up the bin in the foyer.   Thanks and keep up the good work.  Remenber, hunger does not take a vacation!
The Social Action committee of Shomrei Torah is showing a movie on Sat. April 16th at 7:30 . Poster Girl is an Oscar-nominated documentary about an Iraq war veteran dealing with PTSD.  There will be a panel discussion following the film. Film is free, donation is welcome.  Should be quite informative.
B’ shalom,  Lyla Nathan
