Refugee Support Project

Inspired by the message of Passover and the pressing number of refugees in the world, the Refugee Support Project is an interfaith community group based at Temple Israel of Greenfield which provides a collection point for new and gently used household items for refugees being welcomed to the US through the Jewish Family Service of Western Massachusetts in Springfield, http://jvswm.org.

We are shifting focus due to the major shift in immigration policy of the U.S. The Jewish Family Service has not been receiving many refugees all lately, so we are NOT collecting housewares at the Temple. There is now a need to protect our local immigrant community, mostly in Turners Falls and Greenfield. To find out how to help, call Ellen Kaufmann at 625-9708.
