Sleeping Bags - Musical Instruments

In San Diego, approximately 5,000 homeless youth sleep on the streets each night. We will help keep them warm by providing new or gently used sleeping bags. If the sleeping bags are in good condition, there is no need to clean them before donating. Bring your sleeping bags to the barrel in the front office lobby of the Temple. The Social Action Committee will deliver them.

A local nonprofit, Photocharity, provides free music lessons each week. If one of these young adults comes for five weeks of instruction, he or she may choose a musical instrument to keep. If you have an instrument you no longer use, preferably with a case, please consider this donation. Currently, lessons are provided in guitar, harmonica, ukulele, keyboard, drums, violin and cello. If you wish, you may receive a donation receipt from the charity.

For more information on this month’s Mitzvah of the Month, or to arrange for a musical instrument donation, please contact Bonnie Baron at (619) 583-8842.
