Congregation B’nai Israel’s USY (BITUSY) and Kadima chapters are holding a fundraiser to aid the families of Southwest United Synagogue Youth (SWUSY) who were flooded out of their homes, neighborhoods and synagogues in Texas.
SWUSY is a region and a part of the International Conservative Youth movement and covers a large area of the country that includes Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. Our former CRUSY regional director, Jacki Honig, is now regional director in Texas, and we are working directly with her.
We are asking for donations of gift cards to Target, Walmart, Lowe’s, Home Depot or grocery stores (in the Houston area), in denominations of less than $50, that will be distributed to families in their affected kehillot.
BITUSY will have a table at Sunday School from September 17– October 29 to collect gift cards or to accept money in order for gift cards to be purchased. Congregants can send in or drop off any contribution or gift cards to the office ATTN: BITUSY gift card drive.
