Join us in making the Holidays brighter for homeless children in our community. Larchmont Temple and the Kol Ami Social Action Committee are teaming up for the first time to organize the Coachman Holiday Party!
Set-up starts at 12:30 pm and the party is from 1-3. We appreciate any and all help regardless of time constraints. Questions? Please reach out to Vicki Ehrlich at firstname.lastname@example.org or 914-589-1161 (or text me..this is my work/cell). Carpooling can be arranged.
Held at the Coachman Family Center at 123 E Post Road White Plains (near White Plains Hospital and the Galleria) in order to accommodate more children as per the request of the coachman staff, it may not be as convenient as hosting it at Larchmont Temple but it will offer our congregants and family members a glimpse of what it is like for a homeless family 15 minutes from our own comfortable homes. While it is a bit bleak (except for the children's smiles) it is not scary or threatening.
The more volunteers we have (invite your friends and neighbors :D) the more kids we can help to make the coming holiday season special for them and for us!
The party will consist of a lunch, a variety of holiday related crafts, singing and games. Please come alone or with your family. Kol ami will do cookie decorating and origami. we will do a holiday sign along, holiday themed active games and crafts and hopefully gingerbread house and wreath decorating, collaging and card making. What's not to like?
If you'd like to bring or donate presents for the kids and have not already done so through the LT holiday gift drive, please drop them off at my home: 31 Locust Avenue Larchmont (front bench in the vestibule) we are sharing the challenge of providing for 180 kids and teens with Kol ami. Questions, contact Vicki Ehrlich above email address.
Fun Fact: Research consistently demonstrates that volunteering improves physical, emotional and spiritual well being!
Thanks, in advance, for your generosity and caring!
