SEPT. 15 – 26

DONATE TO SOVA OR Volunteer Collective

Temple Emanuel is supporting two very worthwhile organizations this year. Donations of non-perishable food to SOVA can be made online. Donations of new and gently used cold weather clothing like jackets, coats, scarves, hats, blankets, and socks (new only) can be dropped off in the temple foyer for underserved students and families at LAUSD schools via Volunteer Collective.


Much more than a food pantry, JFS | SOVA provides free groceries and an array of supportive services to over 9,000 individuals of all ages, ethnicities and religion each month. At SOVA’s two comprehensive service centers in the Los Angeles area, they offer sustenance, opportunity, volunteerism, and advocacy. This year SOVA is requesting online donations only. The needs of SOVA’s recipients has changed and the demand for fresh food is high.  Make a donation online by clicking hereRead more about the food drive here
