From May 6-9th, over 3,000 items were donated to Tikkun Ha-Ir's Glean Machine Drive!
Donors gave a variety of clothing, household and kitchen goods, toiletries, and children's items to support those living in shelters and working to get back on their feet.
At the 5 Glean Machine stops, including Congregation Emanu-El Bne Jeshurun, Congregation Beth Israel Ner Tamid, Congregation Shalom, Congregation Sinai and Hillel Milwaukee, around 100 people came out to drop off gently used and new items.
Special thanks to all those who make this effort possible!
