BAJY Gives Back!

Mitzvah Opportunity for 6th-8th Graders

On Purim this year, BAJY (Beth Am Junior Youth) collected school supplies to donate to Haven Family House, a Menlo Park location of LifeMoves. LifeMoves provides interim housing and supportive services for homeless families and individuals to rapidly return to stable housing and achieve long-term self-sufficiency. On any given night, they feed, clothe and house 700 people, about one-half of whom are children.

To honor outoing Beth Am President Bruce Ives, who is CEO of LifeMoves, an organization serving homeless individuals and families, Beth Am is collecting school supplies (during the Annual Congregational Meeting and Dinner on Sunday, April 14) to donate to Haven Family House, a Menlo Park location of LifeMoves. This project is also being coordinated through BAJY (Beth Am Junior Youth), who has organized the collection.

On Saturday, April 27, 6th-8th graders are invited to come learn about LifeMoves and help stuff backpacks full of school supplies to donate! This event is free, and snacks will be served. We hope to see you there!
