This year, the Tikkun Olam Committee has chosen to support Direction 180 for our Chanukah drive. Direction 180 is a community-based methadone clinic that uses a harm reduction model whose aim is to help reduce the harmful consequences associated with illegal drug use. The goal of Direction 180 is to help improve people’s quality of life, living conditions, and both mental and physical well-being.
We invite you to join us in this mitzvah by helping to provide any of the following:
· Women’s socks
· Children’s socks
· Hand warmers
· Soups(cans or boxes)
If you are able to help, you may drop items off at the Shaar by December 1. Alternatively, we can pick up your donated items on Sunday December 2. If you’d like us to collect your donations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your address no later than Friday, November 30.
