Due to COVID-19, in August we are “virtually” hosting our Family Promise guests. Family Promise has secured apartments for the guests, but in doing so, they have incurred significant out-of-pocket expenses, at a rate of $7000 per month, rather than being able to rely on congregations throughout Union County to provide shelter and food.
Many of you have volunteered in the past, so rather than hanging out, cooking meals or sleeping over, we are hoping you would consider supporting our guests by making a donation to our Housing the Homeless Fund. These donations will be sent to Family Promise of Union County to support their clients through gift cards for grocery purchases at local supermarkets, transportation, and increased housing costs.
Right now you can double your impact. A very generous temple member will match all of the donations to the Housing the Homeless Fund up to $5000! With your generosity, Temple Emanu-El can send $10,000 to Family Promise!
