HOMELESS ACTION BARNET & TOGETHER IN BARNET NIGHT SHELTERS
As you enter the Woolstone Gallery on your way into the shul there are baskets where you can leave donations of men's clothing, toiletries and non-perishable foodstuff. These are taken to Homeless Action Barnet to help supporting local people find their way from the street back into safe housing. During the winter months institutions like synagogues, churches and mosques provide overnight accommodation for up to 20 people that are on their way back into safe housing. For information on how you can help Together in Barnet Night Shelters please contact Lisa Bard.
DONATIONS TO WORLD JEWISH RELIEF
Naomi Lesser co-ordinates regular donations from EDRS members to World Jewish Relief. Members donate a minimum of £1 a month which goes towards sponsoring a nominated child in the Ukraine who may have significant health issues and whose family are often in a dire financial situation which prevents them and their families from having any quality of life. Please contact Naomi Lesser through the office to make your donation.
