DAYS DONATION DRIVE
SEPT. 25 – Oct. 5
DONATE TO SOVA OR ESPERANZA IMMIGRANT Organization
Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills is supporting two very worthwhile organizations this year. Donations to SOVA can be made online. Diapers, formula, sanitary items, toys, and other necessities in support of Esperanza may be purchased online only to be delivered directly to the organization.
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 here. Read more about the food drive here.
