Morse School

Along with the Hudson Valley Social Action Jewish Coalition, we help the students of Morse School by donating food, clothes and school supplies.

A sampling of the recent good done by our members and friends: 

  • We have joined the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley in our ongoing commitment to supply the food pantry for Morse School families.
  • We have donated school supplies and Thanksgiving food baskets complete with turkeys to the Morse School, together with our partners Temple Beth El, Schomre Israel, Vassar Temple and The Harding Club, and are now collecting warm winter clothing for the school and for the Dutchess Outreach Clothes Closet.
  • One of our Gesher high school students led efforts to collect warm clothing as part of the Bright Nights program with Temple Beth El.
  • We have joined the Mid-Hudson Refugee Solidarity Alliance to provide help for refugee families coming to the Hudson Valley.
  • Prepared and served dinner at the Lunch Box and provided a take-out Chinese food buffet at the shelter.
  • Organized support  for the Coming Home Program for newly released prisoners which is hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Poughkeepsie and the Dutchess Interfaith Council.

We participate by joining with the rest of the Jewish community to paint, repair, garden and help our neighbors.
