Mitzvah of the Month: May
Everything for Infants
During the month of May when we celebrate mothers, let’s help new mothers in our community who need basic supplies for their infants. Family Health Centers of San Diego runs a program, called the Baby Boutique, that encourages new and expecting moms to follow through with important wellness checkups and to attend classes that teach the basics of infant care, including breastfeeding and nutrition. For every pre- and postnatal appointment or class they complete, parents can redeem “Baby Buck Points” at Baby Boutique locations for baby clothes, supplies and toys. We can help with this innovative program by donating requested items.
Please bring the following gently used or new items to the Social Action barrel in the lobby of the front office: infant toys, clothes and shoes for babies 18 months or younger, bath accessories (lotion, towels, washcloths, soap), diapers, baby wipes, rash cream, diaper bags, strollers, kangaroo carriers (infant carriers that strap on in front), high chairs.
As we all celebrate our own mothers and children, let’s help families in need. For any questions, please contact Mitzvah of the Month chair Jean Seager at email@example.com or (619) 435-8130.
Our ongoing collection of toiletries for Monarch School continues! The school, which is dedicated to homeless and at-risk children, has an exceptionally successful program. We help them with care packages from a list they specify. Needed are toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, hair gel, body wash or soap, and body lotion, all in regular sizes, not jumbo or sample size.
Please bring all donations to the Temple, and members of the committee will deliver them.
