New Hope Alliance
Yavneh has challenged the other New Hope Road Alliance congregations to exceed our contribution of at least 20 home-made scarves, hats, or mittens for the Dec 11 holiday party at Wilburn Elementary School, so that we are collectively able to create 100 student gifts. Scarves or other knit items will be offered to youngsters anywhere from kindergarten through 5th grade, so a variety of sizes and colors for boys and girls are welcome. No need to be fancy (though last year, the boys seemed to prefer stripes). Please contact Linda Bamford to pledge how many items you will create for “our kids” at Wilburn, 919-782-6027,firstname.lastname@example.org.
The alliance is now an official garden partner with Compost Now, http://compostnow.org/garden-partners, and should begin receiving compost by spring planting season. If you do not currently compost your household scraps, go to www.compostnow.org to see if the paid service is available in your zip code. If available, please consider composting and donating your compost to the New Hope Community Garden.
Hanukkah Gift Drive
Hanukkah is around the corner, and Jewish Family Services is organizing a gift drive to benefit individuals and families in the Jewish community who are facing economic and social challenges. JFS welcomes donations of gift cards and gifts for children and adults and facilitates volunteers to deliver these gifts to households unable to pick them up. Please contact Tracy Bennett for more information concerning donation and volunteer opportunities or to let her know about individuals and families in need of additional support during the holiday season.
