SOCIAL JUSTICE/COMMUNITY SERVICE COMMITTEE/SUNSHINE

SOCIAL JUSTICE/COMMUNITY SERVICE COMMITTEE/SUNSHINE

The Social Justice/Community Service Committee of the BNC Conejo Valley Chapter is actively involved in many areas of community service. It is our firm belief that the act of “giving” reaps a two-fold benefit of also “empowering” the giver. Our members are involved in many Social Justice projects, through our Temples and our Chapter. Through your contribution, you can play a part in helping us to reach out to many needy families.

It is my pleasure to give you information or to make arrangements for donation pick-up.

Please contact me at gertiesanders@gmail.com

 


OUTREACH:

Many of our members want to do even more to contribute to others in need. So we have begun an OUTREACH COMMITTEE where we engage in a helping project. Our first project will be DOTS FOR TOTS, pasting dots into children’s books to be used for blind children. STAY TUNED for dates , probably in February for our first project. We will ask for volunteers.
