October 23, 2022


10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Congregation Emanu El

Join Sisterhood for their Welcome Home Baskets, an important social action project which will provide 40 baskets full of housewarming items for Houston’s newly arrived immigrants and families in need. Sisterhood invites you to help sort items on October 23, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

You can participate by dropping off new or nearly new items, such as sets for 4 of dishes, silverware, glasses and bath towels, and pots and pans, electric coffee pots, cleaning products, basic tools, and children’s books. These can be placed in bins in the west rotunda. Click below to order items from Amazon or Target gift registries.

For more information and to volunteer, please contact Sylvia Brody at welcomebasket22@gmail.com.
