UPDATED December 15
The Guests of The Beth Emet Soup Kitchen Appreciate Your Generosity!
Once again, the Beth Emet congregation came through to help the Soup Kitchen guests stay warm this winter! Due to pandemic safety concerns, the Soup Kitchen requested only brand-new accessories for this year’s drive. You generously donated: 85 pairs of gloves, 91 hats, 42 scarf/hat sets (many hand-knitted), 28 scarves, 2 coats, 170 socks and 120 handwarmers! On December 9th, guests were surprised and thrilled to receive excellent quality warm winter accessories – all outside the Ridge Street doors. Thank you on behalf of the Soup Kitchen Committee and the Soup Kitchen guests!
