Congregation Beth Shalom of the Blue Hills to collect formal wear
Collection conducted in partnership with Tammi’s Closet in Amesbury
As part of its Third Thursday Community Service Mitzvah Program, Congregation Beth Shalom of the Blue Hills will be collecting prom and bridesmaid dresses for women, and tuxedos and formal wear for men, at the synagogue during the week of March 18th – March 21st. The hours of collection are Monday through Thursday, March 18th-21st from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
The formal wear collection is being conducted in partnership with Tammi’s Closet in Amesbury, an organization that provides prom dresses, tuxedos and formal wear for young ladies and gentlemen who may not be able to purchase them. Gently used formal and business wear can be brought to Congregation Beth Shalom of the Blue Hills at 18 Shoolman Way (off Lodge Street) in Milton, and all donations from the community are greatly appreciated.
The synagogue’s Mitzvah Program, operating under the Jewish tenet that “doing good deeds is an obligation,” hopes to provide service to the community by both congregants and wider community members, and it seeks to involve others, including schools, houses of worship and organizations.
