ONGOING COLLECTIONS AND PROJECTS IN THE COMMUNITY

All donations can be made at Congregation B'nai Israel. We will also take monetary donations in support of the School Supply Drive. $25 fills one child's backtop with needed school supplies to set them up for a successful school year.

As always, food is scarce for so many. Bread of the Mighty is an organization we partner with to help feed those in our community who would otherwise go without. You can drop donations off at the synagogue office, and we ask that you let us know prior to drop off so that we can arrange a contactless donation. We will take care of delivering your contributions. Please be aware that these organizations are unable to accept food that has expired.

We all know how difficult it can be to carry and care for a small child. We also know it takes a village. Help us be a part of the village that supports women and babies in need by donating formula, diapers, new bottles, maternity clothes, and baby clothes from preemie to toddler. Supporting mothers and children strengthens the future of our world, and we can help contribute today to that more equitable future. You can contact the synagogue office to arrange a drop off time for your donation.

Feeding the hungry is one of the most important things we can do. Please visit the Lev Tov website HERE for more information and to sign up to help feed those at the St. Francis House. Congregation B'nai Israel began serving meals at St. Francis House around 1990, when it was coordinated by long-time congregant, Elsa Kula. It was known as the St. Francis House Committee of Congregation B'nai Israel until 2004. At that time the program named was changed to Lev Tov, meaning good heart.

Anyone can participate in Lev Tov. It is an easy program to be a part of and we welcome you to join us if you have done it before or if this is your first time to volunteer.

We want your shoes! If  you have gently worn sneakers, please consider donating them. You can drop them off at the synagogue office, and we will handle delivery from there. Please note that the shoes needed by this organization are sneakers. Also, did you know that one of the items most needed for the homeless are socks? Please consider picking up a pack of socks next time you're at the store or on Amazon, and donating them. We are happy to get them where they need to go.

Amazon Smile sends a donation of .5% of purchase price to the charitable organization of your choice for every eligible purchase you make. Choose B'nai Israel by visiting smile.amazon.com and searching for Congregation Bnai Israel. Amazon will remember the organization you choose, and purchases in the future will continue to benefit our congregation.
