Every Sunday night since May 9, 1993, members of Beth Torah have provided dinner to the residents of SAVEhome, a supervised 8-bed housing support unit for those with HIV/AIDS. SAVEhome is part of SAVE, Inc., (www.saveinckc.org) a local non-profit housing organization that serves over 700 individuals and families affected by or at risk for HIV/AIDS, including those with substance abuse or other mental health problems. Individuals and families sign up for a particular Sunday night and bring dinner to the residents of SAVEhome. You can cook at home and bring it, cook at SAVEhome (they have a regular full kitchen), or bring some take-out food like pizza, BBQ, chicken, and so on. Volunteers are encouraged to stay and have dinner with the residents, but that is not required. Some people do this just once a year; others sign up more often. The choice is yours! This long term Social Justice Project is coordinated by Lauren Aaronson, who can be contacted via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Thank you for helping make this one of our most successful Beth Torah Social Justice projects!
