An update from Social Justice Committee member Martha Ruffman:
The drive was a big success! We filled 27 boxes and delivered them to the families in El Cajon who were very happy to receive so many household cleaning supplies. I wish very much each of you could have sat and had tea and cookies with one of the Syrian couples and their three little boys, as Karen Gross and I were able to do. It was a real privilege and boosted my energy and desire to be of service as best I can be gong forward.
