JCRC Mitzvah Corps Drive for Non-Perishable Items
For there will never cease to be needy people in your land, which is why I command you - open your hand to the poor and needy. Deuteronomy 15:7-8
Oklahoma City and Norman Jewish Organizations are holding a non-perishable drive to help Oklahomans with many basic needs. Oklahomans who need SNAP assistance to ensure they get enough food are not able to use SNAP to purchase basic toiletry needs.
Our Jewish community has launched a special non-perishable drive to help our neighbors with these necessary items.
Requested items and sizes:
* Baby Diapers (Size 4 - 22-37 lb.)
* Baby Wipes (80 count)
* Deodorant (solid stick)
* Hand Soap (7.5 oz liquid)
* Laundry Detergent (25 oz.)
* Paper Towels (2-roll pack)
* Toilet Paper (4-roll pack)
* Toothpaste (regular size)
Please note that sizes are only suggestions - you may donate these items in any size. The sizes indicated just help agencies save time by not having to break down quantities for dissemination.
Each of the following Jewish agencies has put out bins to collect these items: Emanuel Synagogue, Gan Israel Early Learning Center, Hillel at the University of Oklahoma, Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City andTemple B'nai Israel. Please contact each agency directly to confirm time frame they are able to receive donations.
