Keep a child warm this winter!  Donate a coat to Hope’s Door New Beginning’s
Deadline for coat collection is December 10th – Sizes infant through 12 years old boy or girl

Temple Shalom Sisterhood is teaming up with Hope’s Door New Beginnings, a women’s shelter, to collect children’s coats for their holiday event “Joyland”.  At the event parents will get to choose new gifts for their children.  Many of Hope’s Door’s clients are low income (and shelter clients are actually considered homeless), so this is a treat for them and will lift the burden of gift giving at the holidays when money is very tight. Coats may be purchased through Hope’s Door’s Amazon wish list or you may drop coats off at many Sisterhood member’s homes.  Click HERE for more information and drop off locations.   Contact Ann Weintraub at with any questions.
