Avodah: Helping People during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Congregation Avodah.pngOver the last few extraordinary weeks, as the COVID-19 pandemic created new hardships and special needs for homeless people, Avodah has been very active in providing much-needed  bottles of water, camping gear and new underwear to the street community in Victoria.

Fortunately, bottled water and camping gear will no longer be required now that homeless people are, thankfully, being moved into temporary accommodation in hotels.  However, the need for many services continues unabated to meet the huge challenges in supporting the most vulnerable in our community created by the pandemic.

Please consider donating to Avodah at this  time.  We will do our best to find opportunities to assist organizations with their valuable work in the field.

The synagogue office is closed but Zelda who is working from home can access the shul telephone messages. Send her an email or call 250 382 0615 and leave her a  message indicating that you wish to donate to Avodah and she will get back to you.

Todah rabah for your generosity,
Avodah Social Action Committee
