Beth El's Social Action Committee has been busy dreaming up new ideas for social action. We want to take your strengths and put them to work! Have a look at our ideas and contact Jacqueline at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in rolling up your sleeves and getting to work!
FOR THOSE WHO LOVE TO MAKE BEAUTIFUL ROOMS
A Safe Place Women's Shelter in Lake County has two large meeting rooms that need furnishing and decorating for group meetings. Help to create a soothing and welcoming space for women and children at risk. Work on our 'design team' and do a mitzvah!
DO YOU HAVE A GREEN THUMB?
Gardeners can come together to build a 'mitzvah garden' right on Beth El property to grow vegetables for donation to the Ark, Maot Chittim or Moraine Township Food Bank.
ARE YOU A GOURMAND?
Ever dream of being a chef? The Night Ministry's homeless youth shelter needs delicious hot meals to serve their residents. Plan a menu, shop and prepare food at Beth El's kitchen for delivery to the shelter.
Teachers or tutors wanted: Connect to students in Highwood who need help with reading or homework.
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS CAN HELP
Prom Dress Drive - Collect, sort and distribute gently used prom dresses for young women in Waukegan.
Coach Soccer for Boys in Highwood or Waukegan - Opportunities for teenaged boys and their dads to reach out to youth in need through sports.
FOR FAMILIES WITH COLLEGE-BOUND STUDENTS
