                                       CBSW Social Action                           

 We are strongly rooted in social action!  

 The CBSW Tikkun Olam team is currently focusing its efforts

on feeding minds and bodies in Montgomery County. 

Our request is that everyone ask, "How can I help?" We developed a collection of activities that span the congregation in terms of both age and personal interest.

Every year on Rosh Hashanah, the WoodSY youth group distributes grocery bags to the congregation to fill and return on Yom Kippur, which Woodsy then brings to the Interfaith Food Pantry.

Tzedakah collected by CBSW helps us support Montgomery County Food Bank as they purchase food for the hungry. Each $1 buys 5 meals for the hungry!

On the First Friday of every month, we sort and box dry goods such as canned fruit and vegetables for the hungry at Montgomery County Food Bank. We fill 10-14 spots each month to fulfill our commitment.

We've collected snacks for homeless HS teens 

We hold 2 annual Blood Drives (Fall and Spring) 

Our religious school prepares snack bags for seniors who are part of our local Meals on Wheels. 

·         We send funds to Montgomery Food Bank.

·         Holiday shopping for a families from Children’s Safe Harbor 

 We also periodically prepare dinners for teens under our local Children’s Protection Services department. 

 We also raise funds to help homeless students in the Conroe Independent School District and continue to sponsor periodic blood drives at CBSW. 

We focus on three areas: Food, Money, and People.  

FOOD


Every year on Rosh Hashanah, the WoodSY youth group distributes grocery bags to the congregation to fill and return on Yom Kippur, which Woodsy then brings to the Interfaith Food Pantry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MONEY


Tzedakah collected by CBSW helps us support Montgomery County Food Bank as they purchase food for the hungry. Money can be inserted in the CBSW Tzedekah box outside the sanctuary (your kids are already doing this on Sunday mornings!), by dropping a check in the office, or by clicking “Donate” on the upper right of this page (please select “Social Action” at the bottom of the donation list under “Type”). Remember: Each $1 buys 5 meals for the hungry!
