August 2018

JCFS School Supply Drive

Every year, JCFS has a backpack and school supply donation drive to benefit our low income and neediest families. Every child who receives a backpack filled with school supplies through this program is served by one or more of JCFS’s programs. Please bring one of more of the following items to the Temple foyer by July 20 or to Shabbat Under the Stars: new solid color backpacks, crayons, erasers, folders, glue sticks, washable markers, spiral notebooks, pencils, pens, binders, scissors, rulers, color pencils, or highlighters. Sign up below for the packing events on August 3rd & 5th. Contact Shaina Farwell with any questions.

Maot Chitim

Volunteer to make sure everyone gets to enjoy a holiday meal! "Maot Chitim" refers to the centuries old custom of gathering wheat to provide for the poor. Sign up below to help pack and deliver meals. Contact Shaina Farwell with any questions.

Stay tuned for more details and other Tikkun Olam opportunities.
