Upcoming Opportunities:

The 2017 Glean Machine!

May 21-25, 2017

What is the Glean Machine? Why participate?

“Let her glean even among the shearers and put her not to shame…” Ruth 2:15

After the generous winter giving season, each spring area shelters and social service agencies rely on donations to replenish the necessities of those who use their services. The Jewish community rallies to their need in the spirit of Shavuot, gleaning our homes to give  what we no longer need.

 

What?
We are collecting…
• Seasonal clothing
• Toys, books & craft supplies
• Linens/twin bedding
• Toiletries
• Kitchenware & small electric appliances
