During this time of uncertainty and social distancing, many are looking for ways to contribute and make a difference.


After the success of our first drive in May, The B’nai Israel Social Action and Refugee Committees have organized another donation drive so that we, as a B’nai Israel community, can do our part to assist others in this time of need: Please contribute to B’nai Israel’s COVID-19 Relief Donation Drive, Thursday, August 20. Drop off from 9:00 AM– 11:00 AM in the B’nai Israel parking lot.

Please note that all donations will be contactless drop offs. Our volunteers will then sort and distribute to our recipients described below. We do not encourage our community to make extra trips outside their homes to purchase items. Please either add donation items to your already-scheduled supply trips/deliveries, or consider donating money from the safety of your home. If dropping off, please separate donations by organization/recipient.

The three recipients include:

Weller Road Elementary School Linkages for Learning Program: School Supplies
