On the 6th day of Chanukah, the Social Justice Committee partnered with volunteers from Unity on the Bay for a “Chanukah Give Back” at Lotus House in neighboring Overtown. Twenty-two volunteers of all ages – including Rachel Kamp, Maya Litz and Aidan McAdams – pitched in wherever needed to assist with chores in the dining room, storage areas, and outside perimeter of the homeless shelter for 500 women and children. Our own Edmar “Eddie” Amaya made soup and more soup in the kitchen. We gave a lot and we learned a lot – and when Covid protocols allow, we will go back!
