LIGHT ONE CANDLE
TODAH ROBAH! THANK YOU!
WE HAVE MET OUR GOAL!
Any donations we receive in excess of what we need for gift coupons will be used for La Asociación programs, such as our backpack drive and 2019’s Light One Candle program!
LIGHT ONE CANDLE gives the power to purchase gifts to parents. Your $20.00 donation becomes a coupon that La Asociación parents purchase for $5.00. With the $25.00, parents shop for gifts at A Nu Toy Store on Main Street in Tarrytown.
We need YOU!
- Send in cash or a check to TBA with LOC in the memo by Dec. 28
- Drop off your donation at our Tikkun Olam table at the Shabbat Family service (which is also the Ner Shel Tzedakah/Candle of Righteousness*, Hanukkah service) on Dec. 7
- Holiday wrapping paper donations are also needed. Please drop them off at TBA by December 16. Families will be shopping Dec. 17, 18 and 20.
- Volunteers are needed to help with gift wrapping, gift selections, and translations. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
Donations may take up to 48 hours to appear on the thermometer.
*Ner Shel Tzedakah (“Candle of Righteousness”) is a project in which families and individuals devote the sixth night of Hanukkah to learning about the problem of poverty. They donate the value of the gifts (or the gifts themselves) that otherwise would be exchanged on that night to organizations that assist the poor, locally or globally. By making donations on the sixth night of Hanukkah, families help the Jewish candle of righteousness glow brightly for those in need. Don’t let the light go out! (From ReformJudaism.org)
