This December will be the 20th consecutive year that our Jewish community has come together to feed the County's homeless on Christmas Day.

This occasion is used as a means of providing new warm winter clothing and sleeping bags to homeless individuals and families to help them get through our wet winters. Now is your chance to sign up early while all shifts are still available! 

You can also help us purchase these care package items by donating on the United Way SLO website on the 'Care Packages for Christmas' page.

Please feel free to contact Naomi Blakely with any questions. 

Social Action

 

Our ongoing programs: 

ECHO: El Camino Homeless Organization.  COT volunteers monthly to prepare, serve and clean up a meal.  

Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo and Mazon:  High Holiday and Passover food drives 

Get on the Bus:  via Center for Restorative Justice, children are brought to California Men's Colony to visit their incarcerated dads. We proved stay connected bags (with stationary, stamps and picture frames) and Rabbi Janice acts as a bus coordinator escorting families inside the prison.
