Because We Care packages

Our team is available to work with you, your children, or your group to find the right service opportunity, based on your interests and schedule. Parents and participants will receive a program orientation, detailed instructions and suggestions for executing projects, and ongoing support to provide guidance and information.

We are happy to work with you on one of your own volunteer ideas and we’re available to work with classrooms and other groups.

On Sunday, December 8th, we held our Hanukkah Helpers program. Our volunteers decorated plates, dreidels, and cards for some of the families in our community. We also made cookies for The Shul to take to local nursing homes. ✡️
