Paper Goods for Rachel's Women's Center

 

Rachel’s Women’s Center in downtown San Diego provides a variety of services for homeless and very low income women of all ages. Their supportive and sober programs include a drop-in day center, an emergency night shelter and transitional housing. They offer women food, clothing and showers as well as medical screening, life skills coaching and case management.

This month, we are collecting a wide variety of paper goods to use in the Center:

Paper plates and bowls
Hot and cold cups
Paper napkins
Plastic forks and spoons
Toilet paper
Paper towels

Please bring all donations to the Social Action barrel in the front office lobby of the Temple and know that you are fulfilling the commandment of helping the stranger in our midst. Members of the committee will deliver the donations. For questions, contact Bill Seager at (619) 435-8130.
