The Social Action Committee recently had two very successful activities. Last week we went to the Redwood Empire Food Bank where we husked and packed corn from 5:00-7:00 pm Lots of fun. Afterwards we went out for a Mexican dinner. Those participating were, Jared and Barb, Maggie and Bobbie, Lyla, Judi and Lenore. Thanks to everyone who participated. We are thinking about doing this monthly. More info to follow.
Today we joined the nursery school in preparing bags of toiletries for those in need. It was wonderful to see Priscilla, her staff and especially the children have such a good time performing a meaningful mitzvah. The kids packed over 50 bags and even put a special touch of heart stickers on each bag. Thanks so much to Priscilla for organizing the activity. Can’t start too young to teach our kids Tikun Olam.
The bags are in the foyer of the shul. Please take a few if you feel comfortable distributing them.
On Wednesday January 30 we’ll be making and serving dinner at the Palms. If you’re interested in helping, please contact the Beth Ami office.
For the winter clothing drive we will be collecting items for The Living Room this year. The Living Room is a day shelter for homeless women and their children. They do good work and they always have need for clothes, bedding etc. Please refer to the flyer.
If possible please drop off items at their facility. However if you can’t, we will deliver. Toda Raba to all
