Urgent Need for Donations
Mizpah Congregation wants to help airport workers in need. Many have not received a paycheck but are still working.
Please donate through the Mizpah Social Action Committee so that we can obtain gift cards to distribute to those in need. We hope to distribute these cards this week so please donate now. You can use the website under Giving, then Pay Online and mark your donation as Social Action.
Checks can be mailed and credit card donations can be done over the phone.
Thank you for your consideration as we want to help those of our Chattanooga family who are suffering.
