Beth Shalom-Blue Hills collecting formal wear
As part of its Community Service Mitzvah Program, Congregation Beth Shalom of the Blue Hills in Milton once again will be collecting prom and bridesmaid dresses for women, and tuxedos and formal
wear for men, at the synagogue during the week of March 15-18, 2020.
The hours of collection are:
Sunday, March 15, 9:00 -12:15; Monday through Wednesday, March 16-18, 9:00 – 3:00.
New and 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 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.
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.
