In-Kind Gifts and Donations

Seasonal and Holiday Donations

In September we make every effort to supply back to school items such as backpacks, pens, pencils, etc., for our resident children who attend school.

In October we accept non-violent costumes for those children who have none. Call for sizes and quantities needed.

In November we prepare and distribute Thanksgiving baskets to our soup kitchen patrons and accept donations of boxed items (stuffing, cake or brownie mix, bakery pies) and canned items (cranberry sauce, gravy, yams, vegetables and fruits).

To help the less fortunate during the holidays, take part in our "Adopt a Resident" program. Our goal is to provide a gift to each of our residents.

There are other seasonal projects and volunteer opportunities throughout the year. If you wish to participate or find out more about these opportunities, we encourage you to call the Center prior to the season to coordinate your efforts.

THE BETH-EL CENTER IS UNABLE TO ACCEPT USED TOYS, STUFFED ANIMALS OR CLOTHING. PLEASE CONTACT US BEFORE BRINGING HOME-PREPARED OR LEFTOVER FOODS.
