Social Action Committee

 

It is true that while volunteering is often challenging and time and energy consuming, it reaps benefits for all.  As a congregation, we have chosen to support Turning Points in Bradenton.  Turning Points provides a remarkable variety of services designed to assist individuals and families on their path to financial stability and independence. Turning Points is the one stop shop for preventing and ending homelessness in the community.  

In Sarasota and Bradenton, there are many opportunities to volunteer at a wide variety of organizations. The following are just a very few:

The Literacy Council of Sarasota; JFCS’s mentoring and tutoring programs; Selby Library’s Books in a Basket (reading to preschoolers); All Faiths Food Bank; Boys and Girls Club; Second Chance-Last Opportunity; Mothers Helping Mothers; Meals on Wheels.¬†

Many members of our congregation devote considerable time and energy on behalf of a range of local community organizations. ¬†Won’t you be a part?

 If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Alice Blueglass at (941) 383 4899 or namablue@comcast.net.
