Step by Step - A Community Reentry Coalition


Our support for parolees reentering the community is even more important in this difficult economy. We still need hygiene items with particular emphasis on razors, shaving cream, and shampoo. See a good sale? Think of buying several and bringing them to the TempleOffice. A monetary donation (memo: “Step by Step”) will be applied to the urgent needs of parolees to assist them in starting productive lives and staying out of prison. Contacts: Joanne Singer and Dr.Asher Sheppard of the Social Action Commitee.
