Coming Events

 2016 augustweb

For our first Shabbat in Action we will be having a pot luck dinner and an evening of backpack stuffing for children with developmental delay and mental health challenges.  We are working with the Children’s Partnership to provide stuffed backpacks to 25 (or more) children in Austin.

Amy has graciously invited us to her home for this evening.  Everyone is welcome, children included.  This is the perfect opportunity to involve your children in ‘tikkun olam’ with a meaningful and relatable activity. RSVP to Amy for directions to her home (amya@kolhalev.org)

We will begin with the potluck dinner (no meat, no seafood other than fish with scales and fins), and move on to the stuffing.  Our goal of 25 backpacks will provide everything needed for an entire classroom of children to start the school year with everything they need. If we have extra supplies then we will have more prepared children!

We already have a donation of backpacks so on to the stuffing.  We are dividing up the list (amounts are for one backpack):

Last Name A-H:   Glue, white liquid, 8 oz., Supply box (cigar type) , box of No 2 Pencils, 2 Pencils red lead
Last Name I-R: Box of Ballpoint pen blue or black ink, Box of 16 Crayons, 2 Wirebound notebooks, Notebook binder                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Last Name S-Z: Package of paper for binder, Set of 5 dividers for binder, Blunt tip scissors, Ruler, 12″ dual scale metric & conventional, tissues, hand sanitizer

School supplies should be on sale soon so keep a lookout for sales in the paper, on TV, and online.

You can bring the donations with you or drop them off at Jamie Judd-Wall’s office (223 W Anderson Ln #A115) on Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays. Contact her at jamie@tellenterprises.net. If you are bringing supplies to the event, it would be useful to let Jamie know what we are bringing so that we can make everything come out even. 🙂

If you prefer to make a monetary donation, please contact Karen Glina, our bookkeeper, at (512) 419-0945 or bookkeeper@kolhalev.org. Monetary donations received by Wednesday can be used to buy school supplies to pack at the event on Friday, but we will definitely work it out to turn donations received at the event into additional supplies!

Look for more details in the CKH newsletters and announcements.
