Volunteer at the Family Shelter

May 4, 2017 | Filed in: News

Sign Up Now!In June, we will partner for the 17th time with Project Home to provide emergency shelter in our Religious School wing for families who are without a home. Most of our guests are children, and we expect that the demand for shelter will be high based on our experience in past years.

Volunteering in and donating to the Family Shelter helps us to act on the Jewish value of hachnasat orchim…hospitality and welcoming the stranger.

It takes 150 volunteers to staff the Shelter for the month of June.
We need YOUR help!
