Social Action Committee

For the month of September (beginning August 28 and ending Wednesday, September 28) Children's Ed and Social Action will be cosponsoring a children's book drive.  We will be collecting used books to be donated to the children at Springhill Lake Elementary School.  Many of the children do not have books they can call their own.  All types of books are desired, although we have learned that the reluctant readers do best with graphic novels.        

There will be two collection boxes at the synagogue - one in the school and one in the coat room.  Please scour your bookshelves or those of the local bookstores and library stores, and see what you can contribute.  For those close to Silver Spring, Borders on Ellsworth Drive is having a 40% off closing sale and there are still children's books to be had.
