Ongoing Project to Provide Essential Household Items to Those in Need

During these turbulent times, Beth El is delighted to announce that we our partnering with the Kemp Mill Synagogue to provide essential household items to members of the Silver Spring Christian Reformed Church. The church’s population has many young children whose parents lost their jobs due to Covid. They are in urgent need of diapers, cleaning supplies, liquid hand wash, and other essential household items. Once a week, up to 800 people wait for hours outside the church to receive a food (provided by Kemp Mill) and household items (Beth El’s assignment). The Beth El community can make an indelible impact on ensuring the children and families have the essential items they need.

This program is totally contactless. Simply visit this Amazon Wish List and order items. When prompted to choose a shipping address while checking out, please select ‘Food Pantry’s Gift Registry Address’, which will ship your donations directly to the church. Some items may not allow you to ship to a gift registry address, so you can also manually enter the shipping address: Silver Spring Christian Reformed Church, 1501 Arcola Ave, Silver Spring, MD 20902, Attn: Jennifer Renkema. Phone number: 301-284-8401.
