2) Please remember that we are conducting a drive to collect needed household items for newly arrived Afghan families. We have collection boxes in the Shomrei lobby for the following new (preferred) or very gently used items:
Twin bed sheet sets
If you prefer, you can use the following Amazon Wishlist to order the items online and have them delivered directly to Shomrei’s Refugee Assistance Group: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3NFGP0AIC9NBQ?ref_=wl_share. Please be sure to select Refugee Assistance Group’s Gift Registry Address as the delivery address.
3) We will also be partnering with the Westfield Fun Club to help the Afghan families. We expect that the most pressing needs will be housing, furniture, clothing and other in-kind donations. We do not know the specific needs at this time (and don’t have storage space), but if you have furniture and clothes you wish to donate, we ask that you hold on to them for the time being and we will let you know when and how to donate when needed.
- The Westfield Tutors offer virtual tutoring to students on Saturday mornings. If you are interested in helping, the Fun Club will pass along your information.
- Last year the Fun Club offered a homework buddy program during the week and hopes to continue the program this year. It simply entails being on call for a student who is struggling with that day’s homework assignment. This is great for teachers and older adults, as well as high school students. If you’d like to be added to this list, please contact the Fun Club.
SAT/ACT prep – If you are able to tutor for the SAT/ACT exam, please contact the Fun Club. They have several 11th and 12th grade students who are getting ready for the exam.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
We wish you a Shanah Tovah.
Judith, Mike, and Andy
