Children's Treasure Chest: Collecting Children's Books, Clothes & Toys: Please bring gently used or new children's items with you to the Purim Palooza, or to the CBE lobby in the week thereafter. Books will be donated to local shelters, and other items will go to The Closet, which gives items to the needy and sells remaining items to raise funds for local charities.
Blood Drive: Appointments available 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM to give blood before or during the Palooza/Carnival! Just go to http://bit.ly/CBE031719. (Walk-ins also welcome) Did you know... More than 250 units of blood and blood products are needed every day, year-round, for patients in area hospitals. One blood donation can save up to three lives, and there is a continual need for all blood types.
Note: the same evening, March 31, Beth Emeth is hosting a hypothermia prevention dinner for 120 at the Embry Rucker Family Shelter in Reston. Please sign up to cook/donate food and/or to volunteer at the site!
Did you know that “gifts to poor people” (matanot l’evyonim) during Purim is actually a mandate from Mordechai in the Book of Esther?
