Mathilde’s Mentionables

Beth El Sisterhood, in partnership with Mathilde’s Mentionables and, is seeking new or gently used bras (all types and sizes) and new feminine hygiene products.  A drop box is located as you enter Beth El via the center doors.  Or, email Sue Cohen for a pick up at your home. This year-round project provides services to local women of all ages who are in desperate need of these items. This summer alone, we hope to be able to assist more than 100 girls and women in shelters, foster care, therapeutic day schools, residential homes and specialized employment. Please help! Any questions? Contact Sue Cohen.
