January 2017 Hebrew Shelter Home

Thank you to the 39 people who came to the Orange Library for our service project on Sunday. Sarah Froimson, from JFSA’s Families at Risk and Hebrew Shelter Home, joined Caring Cubs for the project. Sarah taught us about the value of home and how Families at Risk provides a home to families who are in need. We read age appropriate books on how to cheer people up in even the smallest of ways. Our cubs and their families learned about Tu B’shvat, a Jewish holiday celebrating trees. The cubs made decorations for the shelter concentrating on trees. Positive paper chains; Good Deed trees; Hand print trees containing messages of hope and happiness; and Bird Feeders were made. We discussed different ways to make people smile and how to help those that are feeling sad. It was a joy to see the cubs working together to make a difference. Each caregiver was supportive and attentive to the the day’s theme. Thank you for the donations of toiletries and paper products for the families served by the Hebrew Shelter. It was a wonderful day!
