Allied Wellness Center Essentials Pantry Donations in Honor of Martin Luther King Jr.

Saturday, January 1, 2022 28 Tevet 5782

All Day for 30 DaysDonate online or in the TBE coatroom

TBE is continuing its partnership with the Allied Wellness Center's Essentials Pantry to assist residents of the Allied neighborhood. In 2021, generous TBE members contributed over $5,000, which purchased thousands of critically needed health and hygiene products, such as toilet paper, paper towels, toothpaste, deodorant, razors, diapers, sanitizing wipes, tampons, shampoo, etc., as well as bus tickets, gas cards, and grocery cards. Allied Wellness Center is incredibly grateful to our community for this support, which especially during these difficult economic times and COVID pandemic has proven to be absolutely essential to the Allied neighbors and most appreciated! This year Congregation Shaarei Shamayim is joining us in supporting the Allied Wellness Center and residents of the Allied neighborhood.

Can you or your family help us fulfill this mitzvah now, during this month of the Martin Luther King Jr. commemorations? The most efficient way to stock the shelves is to donate money so we can buy in bulk. You can make your tax-deductible donation on the Temple website (select Allied Wellness Center as the type). 

You can also mail a check to Temple Beth El (2702 Arbor Drive, Madison, WI 53711) with “Allied Wellness Center” in the memo. 

Alternatively, you can drop off any of the following items in the Temple Beth El coatroom, and we’ll make sure they get to the Allied Wellness Center. 

  • Bars of soap 
  • Toothpaste 
  • Toothbrushes 
  • Body wash 
  • Shampoo  
  • Deodorant 
  • Razors 
  • Paper towels 
  • Toilet paper 
  • Hand sanitizer 
  • Diapers (all sizes) 
  • Diaper wipes
  • Tampons 
  • Sanitary pads 
  • Laundry detergent 
  • Laundry pods 
  • Surface cleaners 
  • Sponges 
  • Dish detergent 

The Allied Wellness Center also has an ongoing need for regular volunteers. Would you like to help purchase items with the donated funds and deliver it to the Allied Wellness Center, and/or stock the pantry shelves? If interested, contact Betsy Abramson, co-chair of TBE's Racial Justice Action Team, at betsyabramson@gmail.com or 608-332-7867.

We hope to raise funds to support many of these critical needs as part of our mitzvah in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. weekend and again mid-year, around Juneteenth.
