The Congregation is invited to Sukkot services this year on Sunday, October 13 at 11:15 AM.
We are asking everyone to participate in 'Pretty Paper Packages for PADS'
Every Sunday night, Etz Chaim's Social Hall hosts PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter). We feed 50 - 60 people and 35 homeless guests sleep here. We give them a hot meal for dinner, breakfast when they wake up, and as they leave in the morning give them a sack lunch to take with. Each week the need for non-perishables grows and now are supplies are at a desperately low level. We are asking you to please bring and/or donate: “Pretty Paper Packages for PADS” (all non-perishable).
Specifically, we need:
- 10 3/4” paper dinner plates* – thick like Chinet
- 5-6” paper dessert plates*
- Soup or cereal bowls*
- Cold cups - plastic 8oz.
- Hot cups - paper 8oz.*
- Plastic cutlery
- Dish soap (any brand)
- Ground coffee in cans - decaf and regular
- Powdered lemonade
- Ovaltine or Nesquik
- Salad dressings in plastic bottles
- Olive and Canola Oil
- Gift cards to Jewel or Marianos for the purpose of buying butter, margarine and milk
Just like we used to bring 'gaily decorated baskets of fruit'...get a container, fill it up with any of the products listed above and bring it with you on Sunday. You will be doing a wonderful mitzvah by helping to fill this tremendous need for PADS.
Thank you so much!
