On our annual Midnight Run, our teens have conversations and meaningful interactions with homeless folks in NYC. We also offer food, coffee, clothing, and toiletries.
The whole congregation can help us by donating supplies to support the Run. We will gratefully accept your generous donations starting Thursday, October 20-Monday, November 7. Please drop off items in the bins located in the main synagogue lobby.
Help us by donating these items:
Toiletry items: soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, lip balm, and moisturizer, razors and shaving cream. All new, unopened travel sizes. Any collections from hotel visits are perfect! Please drop off toiletries by 11AM on Sunday 11/6.
List in order of need, updated 11/3
Thanks to your generosity, we have enough gym socks, tooth paste, toothbrushes and floss, and feminine hygiene items.
Do not donate sandals, lightweight coats, items in light colors that will easily stain, business casual attire, etc.
Interested in a large donation? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can discuss how you can have the most significant impact.
We need help from volunteers of all ages! Children in 3rd-6th grade, teens in 7th-8th to help us prepare, teens in 8th grade and up to participate in the Run, and parent volunteers. Click here to learn about those volunteer roles!
