Carpenters Shelter 

Christmas Dinner 2020
Agudas Achim Sisterhood will host the Carpenter's Shelter Christmas Eve dinner on Thursday, December 24.  Although the shelter will be in it new facility, with a brand new kitchen, due to COVID-19, we are asking for only monetary donations to allow a meal to be purchased and delivered to the shelter.  We will also use funds to purchase drinks and desserts that will be dropped off that day.  
   The shelter allows 4 people to serve food for a given meal; our Sisterhood is NOT arranging for a group to serve the Christmas Eve meal. If you are interested in serving the Christmas Eve meal or any other meal at the shelter, we ask that you make this request by directly contacting the  Volunteer Coordinator, Ms. Jamila Smith, to be assigned a serving slot.
   Sisterhood recognizes that many people look forward to donating their "special" item every year, and we are sorry this opportunity is not available this year. We are all praying "things will be back to normal" next year.
   Monetary donations for this worthy cause should be submitted no later than December 19 to be used specifically for purchase and delivery of the dinner and purchased drinks and desserts. Please do not send grocery store gift cards.   Checks made payable to "Agudas Achim Sisterhood" with "Carpenter's Shelter Dinner" on the memo line of the check should be mailed to Lisa Bregman, 5864 Lowell Ave., Alexandria, VA 22312. Unused meal funds, or checks received after the 24th will be used to purchase Target gift cards for the shelter to use during the year.  Target gift card donations, the shelter's preferred gift card, are also welcome and should also be mailed to the address above.  They will be delivered with cards purchased from excess funds (if we are lucky!) to the Carpenter's Shelter in early January.
