Sukkot Fruit & Veggie Drive
October 11 – October 18
In celebration of the Harvest Festival of Sukkot and to alleviate hunger in New York City, Temple Emanu-El will be collecting donations of canned fruit, canned vegetables, canned soup and pasta. Your donations will help those in need. Please help those who cannot provide for themselves. Donations may be left in the baskets in the lobbies at 10 East 66th Street and One East 65th Street. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Annual Coat Drive
September 23 – December 13
As the cold weather approaches, many families in New York City soon may have to choose between buying coats for their children and themselves or paying the rent. Donations of gently used coats, jackets, hats, scarves and gloves (no other clothing, please) will help to make the decision an easier one. Collected items will benefit New York Cares. Donations may be dropped off at either One East 65th Street or 10 East 66th Street.
