Collections/Contributions

There are many ways to perform tikkun olam in addition to participating on one of our task forces. Consider contributing items to one of our collections or one of the Social Action Funds.

Non-Food Items

From time to time, we announce a collection of specific items such as clothing for Midnight Run or school supplies for the Lois Bronz Children's Center or housewares for the Domestic Abuse Task Force. Please check the pages for the individual task forces to find out what is needed. 

A word of caution: We appreciate the generosity of our congregants but we must ask that you not bring in items that are not the subject of a currently announced collection. Much as we would love to have them, we simply do not have the space or resources they require.

Food of the Month

The Food Cart greets you as you enter the Religious School lobby to remind us that at Woodlands we care deeply about the issue of hunger in our community. Drop in a non-perishable healthy food item as you pass or send one in with your Religious School child.
