On Dec. 13 the members of Temple Beth Sholom donated to our community:

125 bags of candy for TBS social worker’s families
36 activity books and 150 children’s books from Cookie’s Corner
150 baby caps from Knotty Sisters of TBS
20 $25 gift cards for the needy
18 hours of labor cleaning up Hart Park
Dozens of handmade peanut butter dog treats for OC Animal Shelter
All of the above doesn’t just happen without many hours of planning and many, many volunteers. Our thanks to VP Cindy Grossberg, Co-chair Shelly Wellins, Ilene Sirota, Patti Widdicombe, Melanie Pollack, Robin Kaplan, Stacey Nagel, Cheryl Escoe, Sharon Tanner & the Knots of Love Ladies, Pam and Lynn Matasserin, Soni Sanberg, Jill Weinthal, Paula Pitluk, Cindi Dubrow, Sylvia and Mark Borovay, Jack and Angela Holmes, Louise Brown, Monica Engel and the TBS staff. These wonderful volunteers could not have done it all without our terrific junior helpers!
There will be needs in 2016 and TBS will again respond. Hope you’ll join us!
