CBI Cares in July -A part of the Hilton Family Welcome Home Project
July 12, 9AM-3PM
Be a part of CBI Cares! During this difficult time of distance, we are all seeking ways to offer our support and be a source of strength to those in need. On July 12th, we will be collecting Blood for The American Red Cross, Baby Bundles for Arizona Helping Hands and Backpacks for Jewish Family and Children’s Service.
To Donate Blood for the American Red Cross sign up here. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic blood supplies are critically low and demand is high. You can help save a life by making an appointment to donate blood. If donating blood is not possible for you, we will also need a few volunteers for 2-4 hour shifts. If you would like to volunteer, please email Rabbi Mason-Barkin.
To Donate Baby Bundles for Arizona Helping Hands, you can either order directly from their Amazon Wish List (please include a gift note indicating ‘Congregation Beth Israel,’ or bring your donation directly to CBI by July 12th. They have let us know that there has been an increase in children entering foster care, and there is a great need for diapers (size newborn through size six) and wipes.
To Donate Backpacks for Jewish Family and Children’s Service, please bring fully stocked backpacks to CBI by July 12th. Below are links to order the items to fill a backpack from amazon:
- Kindergarten backpack wishlist
- 1st through 3rd grade backpack wishlist
- 4th through 8th grade backpack wishlist
- Teen foster youth backpack wishlist
You can also make a donation to cover the cost of a full backpack directly to JFCS. The average family spends around $670 per year on just school supplies and clothing. For low-income families this is a nearly impossible task without the support of organizations like JFCS and the kindness of people like you.
All social distancing protocols will be followed throughout the day.
Please consider making your ‘caring’ go even further by starting an Amazon Smile account and setting up CBI as your charitable organization. Details on Amazon Smile below.
