CBI Tikkun Olam Fall—Winter Drive Commencing Thanksgiving and ending the 8th night of Hanukkah. This tzedakah opportunity will benefit the Safe Space Winter Shelter’s Project Room Key drive for urgently needed items for unsheltered homeless persons (and those temporarily sheltered in limited hotel facilities under the auspices of the California Department of Social Services Project Room Key). A variety of items are desperately needed and can be dropped off at CBI (please call ahead) or at Room 102, Heritage Inn Express on Broadway, any time between 8 am and 8 pm.
***Project Room Key Donations: Project Room Key staff are glad to accept donations from individuals. If people feel moved to do so, they can donate based on the list below. Some of the items are for people staying in rooms, but other items are for the unsheltered - those that staff must turn away from the program because there is no room.
Items can be dropped off anytime between 8am and 8pm in Room 102 at the Heritage Inn Express on Broadway
