About The Event

This month's collection drive has two tzedakah options - we hope that you will contribute to one or both!

Kitchen Supplies & Gift Card Drive for Newly Arriving Refugees:

Temple Emanuel's Immigration Sub-Committee is collaborating with Church World Service (CWS) and Jewish Family Services to collect specific kitchen items and gift cards for newly arriving refugees.  In addition to the usual rate of settlement of refugees in our region, hundreds of Afghan families are expected to be arriving soon and some are already in Greensboro. We hope you will sign up to bring a specific new or lightly used kitchen item to Temple Emanuel from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Dec. 5. Please only bring what you signed up to contribute. CWS has limited space to store items before they are transported to refugee apartments. Again, you do not need to sign up to bring a gift card; you can bring as many gift cards as you want for any amount. CWS prefers Visa gift cards if possible.
