Welcome Home – Starter kits for newly housed homeless
We are teaming up with EZRA to distribute kits to new apartment renters.  These apartment dwellers are former homeless  chosen by EZRA. The Welcome Home project provides “Kitchen” or “Clean Home” starter kits.  Please choose from one or both kits. 

Kitchen kit includes: Spices, Cooking Utensil set, and Kitchen Towels. 
Clean Home kit includes: Cleaning Supplies, Mop/Broom, and Bucket.

For more information contact: Janice Aronoff or Jill Bernstein

Troop Support – Hero Box
Families will be sponsoring the Army unit of one of our congregants’ sons who is being deployed in the Middle East. The boxes you create are being sent directly to their unit.  Our goal is to send 50 Hero Boxes to the unit with items specifically requested by the Unit Commander.  Each family will spend $30 per box and can send 1 or more boxes, whatever fits your budget!  Kids will have a chance to create a meaningful note or drawing for the Hero that will get their box.  This is an opportunity for your family to show your support for those that put their lives on the line for our country.
