Hurricane Harvey Collection

We have all been touched by the devastation that has hit Houston and the Gulf Coast region.  We have seen the images, heard the stories, and as Long Islanders, we are joining forces to help those affected in the area. 

Next week, we will be sending an 18 wheeler full of supplies from Long Island to the Houston area.  We are working together with leaders of the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston to coordinate the donations to all those needing assistance.

 We need your help to fill the truck!
Items we are collecting:

•bottled water          •heavy-duty trash bags 
•packing supplies       •work gloves 
•cleaning supplies, including old towels 
•Non-perishable food items
•gift cards from home repair stores and grocery stores

Please label bags with contents, as we must record what is put on the truck!

Drop Off Locations:
Temple Judea of Manhasset– 333 Searingtown Road, Manhasset
Temple Beth Torah– 35 Bagatelle Road, Melville
