Help Make Mitzvah Day a Success

We need help from the congregation. Could TBA members please go through their bathroom cupboards to find and donate:

  • mini-size toothpaste tubes (new)
  • toothbrushes (new)
  • new dental floss (new)
  • combs (new)
  • mini-sized shampoo bottles (hotel size)
  • mini-sized conditioner bottles (hotel size)
  • mini-sized body lotions (hotel size)
  • mini-sized mouthwash (hotel size)
  • washcloths (gently used – one that you no longer use because it doesn’t match or is a little worn out)

A few phone calls to our family dentists will result in donations of toothbrushes, dental floss and mini-sized toothpastes. Are there any Beth Am members who are dentists? Also, people often come home from a dental hygiene appointment with a new toothbrush, etc. , but they use a Sonicare at home, so the new one just goes into the cupboard.

Many families bring home mini-sized toiletries from their hotel stays (shampoo, conditioner, mouthwash and hand cream). Perhaps, there is a Beth Am member who owns a hotel? Also, women who sell MaryKay, Arbonne or Avon often have samples they are willing to donate. Know anyone in that line of business?

Most families have a wash cloth or two that they no longer use because it doesn’t match or is a little worn out. That would be perfect, because none of the ones we want need to match.

If you have any of these items that you would like to donate to Mitzvah Day, please contact:

Kate Gebler kdngebler@comcast.net or Terri Buysse motheringvoice@yahoo.com

Or items can be dropped off in the Religious School Office in a bag marked “4th Grade Mitzvah Day Project”

Many thanks your support of Mitzvah Day!
