Our Social Justice and Action Committee has long-standing partnerships with charitable organizations all over Tucson. Today, more people than ever are in need of the support these organizations provide. Because of the pandemic we cannot support our partners with our volunteerism, but we can support them through our donations. Your contribution of any amount will enable our continued mission of Tikkun Olam – making the world a better place.
When public schools closed, they made the transition to online classes. Unfortunately, many students at John B. Wright Elementary school did not have computers at home to access their lessons. Sheree Garcia, a 2nd & 3rd grade teacher at the school, purchased computers and food with her own funds and personally delivered them to students who need them. To help defray her costs, send a check to the John B. Wright PTO at the school address: 4311 E. Linden St., Tucson, AZ 85712, with Sheree Garcia in the memo line.

The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona is no longer in need of volunteers because the National Guard is helping out. However, they do need cash donations because of increased demand for food, since a lot of people have been laid off. They expect some support from both the State and Federal governments, but need some short-term funding until that comes in. If you are able, click here to make donations directly to the Food Bank. Your contributions will be most welcome!

As individuals who care passionately about each other, the Caring Chavurah has established a task force to support those in need. Although we have limited resources, we want to be able to assist those who may need a helping hand. More
