Several drop off locations including Naperville, Lakeview, Wheeling, & Highland Park - RSVP to receive addresses.
You can make a difference right here in Illinois! Care & Share is new this year and a part of our Community Service initiative: NCJW Gives Back. We want to encourage children to help other children through various collections. Drop off locations will be at various Synagogues in IL and coordinated with Sunday Schools. More details coming soon.
Background: Migrants from Mexico and countries in Central and South America have been bused to Chicago from Texas. The children of these families need school supplies to start their new lives in this country — just like previous generations of our families needed help when they first came to this country.
Let’s GIVE BACK in October by supplying these children with any of the following items:
- New writing utensils like: pens, pencils, markers, crayons, colored pencils
- New notepads, pencil cases, children-sized scissors, glue-sticks
- New folders, binders, backpacks
You can also donate funds and our Community Service committee will take care of purchasing the above items for you!
Items and funds are all due by November 1st.
