Knit a Mitzvah

Needed: Gently Used Purses

Needed: School Supplies and Socks


This fall, we will collect NEW socks of all sizes for children and adults in need.

We also are continuing to collect school supplies for children in need. Pencils, erasers, rulers, notebooks, paper, folders, glue sticks, tissues and so much more are needed.


 One last item that is very useful for adults is empty pill bottles. They are given out filled with toiletries. Please remove the labels before donating.


You can drop off your donations at one of two locations in Phoenix and one in Scottsdale.

For more information or collection addresses, please contact us.

YOU CAN VOLUNTEER FROM HOME
Do you have time on your hands? One of the pillars of the BNC Mission Statement is Community Outreach. Members who are interested in doing volunteer work for various charities from home, can contact 
phxbnccommunityoutreach@gmail.com.

We will collect any gently used handbags, totes, purses, etc. that you bring with you to events and study groups for Purse-Impressions. This organization takes new and used handbags, fills them with toilet articles and distributes them to women coming out of rehab. 
You can read about this charity on the 
Purse-Impressions website.

PROJECTS

Community Service is a fundamental part of the mission of BNC. Throughout the year, we collect items for various non-profit organizations in the greater Phoenix area, and your support is much appreciated. Additionally, our Mitzvah Mavens Study Group provides participatory activities for our members to volunteer directly with specific agencies. 

Mitzvah Mavens
Participants in this study group volunteer at a variety of Valley non-profit
organizations. We meet at the specific locations of the organizations on various
dates, lending helping hands as needed. If there are activities that can be done
at home, participants will be notified.


See the Study Group Guide for more information about this and other study groups.
