Congregation Beth Israel in Scotch Plains will collect gently-used coats on Sunday, November 24, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.
The coat drive is open to the community. A drive-through will be set up and volunteers from Congregation Beth Israel will be on-hand to collect coats directly from donors’ cars.
The coat drive will benefit Jersey Cares, a non-profit, community-based organization that mobilizes the collection and distribution of thousands of winter coats to men, women and children in need. Congregation Beth Israel’s Social Action Committee has participated in the Jersey Cares annual coat drive for many years; the committee collected close to 100 gently used coats last November.
Congregation Beth Israel is located at 18 Shalom Way (at the corner of Martine Ave.) in Scotch Plains. For more information, contact the synagogue office at (908) 889-1830 or contact Joanne Schwartz, event co-chair, at Joannedbs@comcast.net or at (908) 654-7553.
