Get involved with Congregation Beth Israel and our Bellingham/Whatcom County community through the Social Action Committee. Projects include collecting donations for the Food Bank, making hats for the homeless, an annual Thanksgiving collection for Womencare Shelter, and other volunteer opportunities. Contact Committee Chair Linda Blackwell through the Beth Israel office.
During August and September, Social Action will be collecting backpacks for the Opportunity Council’s back to school drive. These can be dropped off in the basket in the Social Action nook by the water fountains.
