Giving the Gift of Warmth - 2nd Annual Hesed Mission
Sunday, January 05, 2020 at 10:30 AM
While the temperature keeps dropping outside, we are at ease knowing we have a warm home to return to and nourishing food to eat. Sadly, there are so many people in our city who do not have the same blessings we do. To help shoulder their burden, we are making winter care packages for the homeless battling the cold weather on the streets of Manhattan.
Join us this Sunday morning, to help pack and distribute 100 packages to those most in need of a little warmth and kindness this winter!
This is a project for the entire family, but most importantly an opportunity to teach our children the most selfless act of Hesed, one that can never be returned. An act of kindness they can physically accomplish with their own two hands, and not just by writing a check. There will be something for everyone to do, so bring all the helping hands you can find!
Let us know you're coming!
We're still looking for items, in quantities of 100, to fill these packages of warmth! Below are the items we'd like to include:
Earmuffs, Reusable Water Bottles, Rain Poncho/Jacket, Undershirts, Fragrance Free Deodorant, Compact Hairbrush & Mirror, Travel Sewing Kit, Small Gift Cards (up to $5 each) / Prepaid Meal Coupons.
If you can donate any of these items please email us!
Once our packages are ready to go, we'll be hitting the streets to give them out. We are arranging drivers and vans to chaperone participants around the city to spread the distribution.
