Cancer Screening

Knowing Saves Lives — Women and men of Ashkenazi Jewish (Central or Eastern European) ancestry have a 1 in 40 chance of carrying a BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation. This is at least a ten times greater probability than that of the non-Jewish population. Individuals with a gene mutation in either BRCA1or BRCA2 are at higher than average risk for developing certain cancers. Talk to your loved ones about your family history of cancer. Want to know more about BRCA? Visit www.basser.org or call (215) 662-2748.

Food Drive

The Social Action Committee is sponsoring an ongoing food drive for Christian Community Action’s Food Pantry. Bring in nonperishable food items (no glass please). Double-bagging is appreciated. A collection bin is in the rotunda.

Clothing Drive

The Social Action Committee is sponsoring an ongoing clothing drive for Immanel Baptist Church’s Clothes Closet. Clean out your closets and bring in your unwanted items. The collection bin is in the Coat Room.
