Ongoing Social Action Projects

 

Blanket Boosters is a longtime Beth El mitzvah project. If you like to knit or crochet for fun or want to learn, this is the group for you. Help us create blankets to donate to people in crisis. Past donations have gone to hurricane relief, local police and fire departments, hospitals, and women’s shelters in our community. Yarn and crochet hooks are provided. Contact Sandy Robbins at ssandy6807@gmail.com for more information on joining or attending a meeting.
