MORE WAYS TO HELP
Pressman Pajama Drive
We are collecting PJs sizes 2T – Adult Medium (sizes 8-14/16 are especially needed) for Hope in a Suitcase. PJs MUST BE NEW with tags or in original packaging, must include bottoms (no nightgowns please), may not be holiday specific, and should not contain family-references (e.g. "Daddy's Little Girl"). Please consider donating pajamas that are suitable material year-round. For more information, please visit: http://www.hopeinasuitcase.org.
HOW TO DONATE:
- Pajama Drive donation bins are located by the entrance to Temple Beth Am, the lower lobby of the Temple building near the Colker Gift Shop, and by the parking garage exit.
- Pajamas may also be purchased through an Amazon Wishlist which will be sent to a parent volunteer for HIAS dropoff. Deadline to donate is December 6th.

DONATE YOUR BACKYARD PRODUCE
Do you have trees full of more fruit than you can eat? Do you have gardens full of more food than you can use yourself? Food Forward gathers food that would go to waste and gets it to those who need it. Contact TBA member Miriam Cantor at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
DONATE FREQUENT FLYER MILES
After surviving war, persecution, disaster, and being separated from their families, refugees, asylees and asylum-seekers only want one thing: to be reunited with loved ones. But when that crucial moment comes, the cost of a flight prevents the majority from being together. That’s where your frequent flyer miles can help.
