Kehila collects non-perishable healthy foods, and lightly-used clothing and homegoods before and during Yom Kippur services.
Examples of healthy non-perishable foods include:
- Canned tuna, chili, beans, vegetables, fruit, tomato or pasta sauce, and juice
- Dried beans, rice, and pasta
- Peanut butter
- Cooking oil
- Clothing that teens would enjoy wearing, such as large, black or gray T-shirts and (even ratty!) jeans.
- Coats, hats, scarves--all warm-weather clothing
- Large, size 2-6 diapers (NEW!) are always needed
- Sheets, blankets
- Bath towels, washcloths, bath rugs
Collection will be September 18, 2018 before and during Kol Nidre, and September 19, 2018 before and during Yom Kippur services. Clothing and homegoods will be collected in a U-Haul rental truck parked in back of Walter Johnson High School. Food will be collected just inside the school’s back door, near the truck. Volunteers are needed to help receive and organize the clothing and food donations starting a half hour before services begin. This work can count as community service for student volunteers.
