At the AGM last Sunday, Sue Levitas reminded everyone about the baskets near the front door.  They are for our donations of food and toiletries that go to HARP, the local charity that helps the homeless.  Please remember to drop some item of food or toiletries into the basket next time you come to the Synagogue.  Every little bit helps.
