Blanket Drive

Even in sunny San Diego, people suffer from exposure from winter's cold and rain.  This year, the need for blankets is expected to be greater than usual.  Temple Emanu-El's Social Action Committee is onece again asking for blankets.  They may be used, but clean and in good condition.  Theywill be given to the Alpha Project, the Veterans' Winter Shelter and others in need in the San Diego area. 

For any questions, please contact Mitzvah of the Month Chair, Larry Ponseggi at (619) 444-9163.  Bring your donations to the white barrel in the lobby of the Temple Office building and the Social Action Committee will deliver them.
