Gift cards for those in need
The Social Action Committee is requesting donations of $10 gift cards for St. Vincent de Paul from Walmart, Kroger, or Meijer for shelter residents transitioning to stable housing. They have a very large number of families moving through the shelter entering housing with very few needed supplies. These retailers are all located on bus lines, providing easy access for the shelter residents. Please bring your gift card donations to the Temple office and Amy Margolin will take them to St. Vincent de Paul.
School Supplies for ESOL program
Do you have extra school supplies that you can donate? St. John's English for Speakers of Other Languages is in need of folders with pockets, spiral notebooks, erasers, and white chalk supplies for their students. They are also seeking an industrial quality pencil sharpener. Please place any donations in the bin in the Temple lobby.
Nutrition Equality in the Miami Valley
Volunteers from Temple Israel are needed to transport fresh, high-quality frozen foods from Trader Joe's to the House of Bread for them to use as a part of their free hot lunch program. On the third Saturday of each month, we will load up a van, truck, or SUV and transport the items. The trip only takes about 20 minutes and the activity is ideal for families and couples. Contact the Temple office for more information.
