JSC Bowled a Strike for Charity

Nearly 40 members of the Jewish Singles Collaborative braved slushy roads to come out on a snowy Christmas Eve to bowl with friends and donate to charity. More than half the attendees at the Park Tavern event were walk-ins – guess they decided the weather was not as bad as predicted.

We “scored” 229 rolls of toilet paper (!!), 11 rolls of paper towels and an assortment of diapers, hygiene items and some food to donate to STEP, which responds to the emergency housing, food, clothing and other needs of St. Louis Park residents. Several JSC members also walked away with some cool door prizes. Fun was had by all. – Jewish Singles Collaborative.

Note: Proceeds from the bowling event will be used to help buy food for the displaced people at “Our Saviour’s Shelter,” where Chaverim will be serving dinner Mon. January 11. If you’d like to join Chaverim for its “Itza Mitzvah” event, look for details in the upcoming JSC e-blast.
