I am a member of a local chapter of the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom, which brings Muslim and Jewish women together to break down stereotypes, promote positive interactions, and engage in projects to help the community.
Along with our member Syd Mandelbaum's organization called "Rock and Wrap It Up, Inc.," we are participating in Hannah's Project, which distributes feminine hygiene products (not covered by SNAP) to women and at-risk teens in shelters, soup kitchens and pantries.
During November, we will collect the items listed on the flyer to be delivered to participating organizations in our area. The Rina Shkolnik Food Pantry, which is an affiliate of the Marion & Aaron Gural JCC, will be one of the beneficiaries of this collection.
The items can be deposited in the collection bin outside the entrance of the Sandrow Chapel or you can order them from the Amazon Wish List and they will be delivered for you to our chapter representative.
