Room In the Inn - Beth Sholom

Room In The Inn - Beth Sholom 1/10/19

For my Bat Mitzvah project, I am proud to be organizing Beth Sholom as a host site for Room In The Inn - Memphis.

Beth Sholom will open its doors to provide hot meals and safe overnight shelter 6-8 women and children experiencing homelessness. We will serve as hosts 3 times throughout this winter. The dates are:

  1. Thursday, January 10, 2019
  2. Thursday, February 21, 2019
  3. Thursday, March 7, 2019

There are several ways to help:

Donate supplies: Donate newly purchased or gently used items for things like sheets and sleeping bags. Please purchase new items like toiletries and socks. Please leave donations in the Room In The Inn bin at Beth Sholom.

Volunteer your time: During the hosting event: cook, clean, drive, set-up/break-down, etc.

Make a monetary donation: Toward my project for purchasing supplies: https://www.bsholom.org/riti
