Equipped to Learn Backpack Drive
Donate items by July 26
Temple Emanu-El is partnering with Jewish Family Services to collect backpacks and school supplies for preschool through adult learner clients. With your help, our JFS SV students will be off to a great start for a successful 2016-17 school year!

There are several ways you and your family can help someone be equipped to learn and succeed. Look for the backpack boards and bins in the synagogue lobby. You can turn in your donation at the synagogue backpack bin or at JFS SV at the Levy Family Campus. You can donate a full backpack for a needy student based from a requested supply list, you can purchase target gift cards, or buy from our online registry. There will also be lots of volunteer opportunities for families with children 10 and up. Check our web site for details. Any questions, contact
