Dreams for Change

Dreams for Change is a local organization which provides a safe place to park for those homeless individuals and families who are living in their cars and striving toward self-sufficiency.  Currently, they have two locations in the county - one downtown in San Diego near Petco Park, and the other in Chula Vista. 

In October we will collect:

Boxes of trash bags - kitchen size, 13 gallon
Female hygeine products
Deodorant and other toiletries
Toilet paper

For any questions, please contact Mitzvah of the Month Chair, Barbara Pollack at (619) 224-3087.  Bring your donations to the white barrel in the lobby of the Temple Office building and the Social Action Committee will deliver them.
