A few years ago, starting with Hurricane Katrina, they mobilized their congregants and begin to collect donations to send into disaster areas for distribution to those local families in need. Specifically, the idea of replacing a lost keepsake that children cling to for support (stuffed animals, blankets, etc.) was implemented. The congregation buys hundreds of new stuffed bears, the congregant members add a personalized note and then box them and ship them to areas in need. CT donates the cost to send these stuffed bears into areas such as firehouses and police stations. The police, EMS, and firefighters then hand them out to all children in the shelters, Red Cross areas, community centers, and homes where these children are now staying. Additionally, CT/RW donates the use of one of our full trucks to deliver donations and supplies into the poorest rural areas in the US, an Appalachian county in McRoberts, KY. The Good People Fund, Temple Israel and CT have supported done this for the last 6 years. This pick up from the Youngstown Community Food bank by our RW driver, delivers items to volunteers in KY for distribution to this community-it’s schools and it’s residences. ?articleID=39 Mon, 23 Jun 2014 00:00:00 GMT CT CT Logistics Holiday Schedule, Second Half of 2014 Labor Day United States Monday, September 1st Closed Thanksgiving United States Thursday, November 27th Closed Day after Thanksgiving United States Friday, November 28th Closed Christmas Eve Wednesday, December 24th Closed Christmas Day Thurssday, December 25th Cosed New Year’s Eve Day Wednesday, December 31st Closed New Year’s Day Thursday, January 1st Closed ?articleID=40 Mon, 23 Jun 2014 00:00:00 GMT CT Welcome!
