One of the Jewish principles our children are learning about is the concept of tzedakah – charitable giving. This month, we are partnering with Together We Rise to demonstrate the act of charitable giving to our children and to give back to our community.
Together We Rise provides local foster kids with Sweet Cases (duffel bags with teddy bears, hygiene kits, and blankets) as well as Birthday Boxes (boxes filled with candy, party supplies, and gift cards).
As of January 2018, there were 1,051 children in out-of-home foster care in Palm Beach County. Nearly half of these children were between the ages of 0-4. Most children entering foster care receive just two trash bags for their belongings. You can help our local foster children feel cared about by making a financial contribution through the month of October. Every $250 collected will allow us to purchase and put together 20 bags/boxes.
We also invite all of our One School families to join the PTO and Temple Beth Am at noon on October 21st in the Social Hall to decorate and assemble the bags and boxes. The PTO will provide lunch!
This project is also eligible for to receive FREE 1-Day Disney Park Hopper tickets, which will be raffled off to all of the participants who join us on October 21st!!
