Juneteenth Allied Wellness Center Drive

Wednesday, June 1, 2022 2 Sivan 5782

All Day for 29 DaysDonate online or in TBE coatroom

In acknowledgement of Juneteenth, Temple Beth El is continuing its partnership with the Allied Wellness Center's Essentials Pantry to assist residents of the Allied neighborhood. Juneteenth commemorates the emancipation of enslaved people in the US and recently became a federal holiday. 

TBE's Racial Justice Action Team is hosting its semiannual drive for personal hygiene and cleaning products for the Nehemiah and Allied Wellness Center Essentials Pantry. Your contributions to our MLK 2021 and 2022 drives to support the Essentials Pantry have been greatly appreciated. The 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 essential to the Allied neighbors. Help us continue this support in the months ahead by contributing to our Juneteenth drive. 

Can you or your family help us fulfill this mitzvah now, during this month of Juneteenth 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 donation 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, and 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. 

Juneteenth events are being planned many places in Dane County. In Madison, the annual Juneteenth Parade & Celebration will be held on Saturday, June 18, in Penn Park. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience the rich history of Black Americans through various forms of entertainment, lectures, visual presentation, food, and other activities.
