You Gave with Love!
Thanks to your generosity, from the Jewish community and beyond, many more families felt warm and cared for this holiday season.
Tikkun Ha-Ir provided gifts for over 1,500 people
through twelve shelters and day programs serving the homeless and the
hungry. Your contributions generated 3,000 items in total of winter clothing
such as hats, gloves and scarves. In addition, you helped to provide
books, toys, art supplies, blankets, and toiletries.
Street Angels Outreach Inc works 3 days a week to provide essential supplies and hope to those living on the streets daily. YOUR donations helped them support the homeless by donating 1,000 pairs of socks! Watch the THI Executive Director share about this donation or read more about it here!

A BIG thanks to those of you who contributed funds to support the drive. With some last minute requests, we used funds to buy books, socks, and toiletries to better meet the needs of our recipients.
Lastly, none of this could have been done without the hard work of THI’s Project & Development Coordinator Karen Royster.
A very special component of this effort is the Holiday Party and Santa visit at Cathedral Center and Friendship House.
