Emanu-El Driven to Care

Emanu-El Driven to Care

Yearly collection drives to support our local community

Share your bread with the hungry, and take the wretched poor into your home; when you see the naked, clothe them. (Isaiah 58:7)

In Judaism, the mitzvah of Tzedekah (giving to those in need) is not considered a good deed or a generous act—instead it is considered something that should be done simply because it is the right thing to do. At Emanu-El we want to help you achieve this goal through our partnerships with various local non-profit agencies who care for others during their time of need.  An easy way to do this is to donate specific items to our monthly collection drives featured on this page. Below are instructions on how you can participate.


As part of our year-long effort to help serve youth experiencing homelessness, we are launching regular monthly drives that collect items needed by Larkin Street Youth Services . Larkin Street provides housing, education and employment training, and health and wellness support to help young people get off the street for good. Each month will be spearheaded by a different group in the Congregation to further integrate our social justice work into ongoing activities.

 

Tzedek Council’s MAY DRIVE:
Help SF Homeless Youth Transition into their New Homes with Welcome Basket items

DATE: Month of May
COLLECTION LOCATION: Amazon Wish List , Target Wish List, or Main Office Foyer

Building on the spirit of Passover where Jews settled in a new land after a period of wandering, please join the organizers of the Women, Family, and Adult Seders as well as the Preschool and Extended Day Care as we collect items needed by Larkin Street Youth Services. In these months, we will be compiling new-home “welcome baskets” to help Larkin Street graduates get settled in their new homes, easing the transition to life on their own. The beneficiaries will have successfully completed Larkin Street’s program, which provides housing, education, employment training, and health and wellness support to help young people get off the street for good.

Our goal is to assemble 30 Welcome Baskets to help get their new independent lives off to a good start and ensure that these resilient young people do indeed stay in stable housing for the long-term. Please refer to the following wishlists at Amazon and Target  for the types and numbers of items we need to make 30 welcome baskets. As always, feel free to purchase items wherever you choose but we ask you first check the wishlists to see what is still needed. You’ll find quantities listed for the following items that will change over time just like a Wedding or Baby Registry.

Thank you for being part of this great mitzvah.

Bring one or more of these items to the Temple Emanu-El office:

  • Towels
  • Bedding
  • Pillows
  • Small cleaning supplies – Kitchen & bath
  • Laundry hamper
  • Laundry Detergent
  • Gift card to purchase items to make the space their own

Want to just order items for delivery to the temple? Check the drive’s Amazon Wish List and Target Wish List  

Have questions? Contact Rebecca Reiner.


Year-round Collection Bins:

We have clothing and household collection bins year-round at Emanu-El for St. Anthony’s and non-perishable food collectin bins for both the San Francisco Food Bank and Jewish Family and Children Services.
