This year marks the 20th Anniversary of Temple Micah’s Underwear Drive!

Since 2000, every fall from Rosh Hashanah through Yom Kippur, the Machon Micah sixth grade class organizes our Underwear Drive, which provides a year’s worth of undergarments for our neighbors experiencing homelessness. We donate the underwear to Friendship Place.

We need your help to reach our goal of 15,000 pieces of underwear! Collection bags will be distributed at Rosh Hashanah Services and collected at Yom Kippur, as well as through the month of October.  A shopping list can be found below:
