Donations of schools supplies needed
JAWAM is collecting school supplies for the students of Madison Early Childhood Center.
For the next few weeks, JAWAM is collecting supplies for Madison Early Childhood Center, located just one block south of the church. They sent us the following list of requested items: pencils, crayons, colored pencils, glue sticks, children’s scissors, & any other art materials would be great. You can bring donations to the church on weekday afternoons (call the church office if the door is locked). Put the donations under the coat rack in the narthex.
ALSO: Elizabeth Hill, one of our teachers at Boise First, has asked JAWAM for the following supplies (listed below). If you’d like to help, please bring the items to the church and Elizabeth will get them. Since we are now collecting for both Madison & Elizabeth, please label your donations so we know where they’re going.

Website with Food Resources During the Pandemic
A team from the Interfaith Equality Coalition has put together a website with resources for food, and ways to help those who need food. The focus is on marginalized individuals and families who were already food insecure, as well as those in our community who may be experiencing food insecurity for the first time due to circumstances of the spread of COVID19; job loss, etc.
