The Social Action Committee of Temple Judea once again held its annual winter clothing drive. Its purpose was to collect warm winter clothing for less privileged children, teenagers and adults who will need warm clothing during the cold winter months.
Temple Judea congregants of all ages joined in the project of sorting the many donated items. Students of the Religious School assembled sandwiches and snack bags to distribute along with the clothing to the donation site.
A caravan of cars carried the many sorted bags of the clothing items as well as the snacks to the Senior Center in Glen Cove. The items were organized in categories and sizes on individual tables, making it easy for the recipients to take the items they needed for themselves and their families. The snacks were provided for all who came.
Social Action Committee Co-Chairs Rita Marcus and Alicia Munves said, “Our congregants are always so helpful and the people who receive the clothing have always expressed sincere gratitude. This year was no different.”
This clothing and food distribution, “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” is sponsored by TANS, a consortium of social action chair-people from many synagogues and JCC’s on the North Shore along with several Glen Cove community organizations.
Temple Judea is located at 333 Searingtown Road, Manhasset (off exit 36 north on LIE) and can be reached at (516) 621-8049 or www.temple-judea.com
