School-Wide CollectionClick for flyer
Machane TBA is holding a drive to collect supplies needed for families and children in Child Welfare Services.   SNAP benefits (formally known as food stamps) do not cover household cleaning supplies or toiletries.  Items being collected are shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, dental floss, bar soaps, body lotion, hair brushes and combs, nail clippers and nail files.     We can also use Amazon gift cards to purchase these items on your behalf (send to Elaine Prigal at eep@bethami.org).    On 4 nights during the year, TBAHigh students will be putting these supplies together into kits to help support vulnerable children and families.  

11th graders put ___ (how many?) kits together on Nov. 16!   12th graders will be assembling kits on Tuesday, January 4.

On Sundays, look for the collection carts outside both Temple doors.   On Tuesdays, have your student give their donation to their teacher.   The TBAHigh class with the highest rate of participation will win a pizza party and campfire for their class in the spring!

Questions about this drive?   Contact Elaine Prigal.
