October 2 - 20
The pictures in the news are mind boggling; the stories are heartbreaking. Beth Emet is doing our part to provide assistance by partnering with the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture (NMPRAC) in Humboldt Park to gather much needed supplies to those in need, beginning Monday, October 2 through October 20. You can help by donating items listed below by either dropping them off at Beth Emet’s collection box (located on the first-floor hallway) or by sending items via Beth Emet’s Amazon Wishlist to Beth Emet. Each shipping container costs $6,000, and the NMPRAC has also requested money to help defray their costs. Checks can be sent to Beth Emet, and payable to NMPRAC PR Relief or donate online.
