The Sandhills Jewish Congregation is strongly committed to improving the lives of others within the community.  Our congregation accomplishes this goal through our active participation in the Sandhills/Moore Coalition for Human CareFamily Promise ProgramAnnual Blood Drive, and the Moore County Literacy Council.  We encourage our members to get involved with these important programs.

Sandhills/Moore Coalition for Human Care
Sandhills/Moore Coalition for Human Care is supported by more than 70 area congregations to meet the emergency needs of Moore County neighbors by providing food, clothing, and financial resources and to collaborate with appropriate agencies for clients with on-going needs.  Sandhills Jewish Congregation will be collecting food for the Coalition for Human Care in November and also collecting baby food and diapers or food in January, April and June.

Family Promise Program
The Family Promise Program is a cooperative effort of various houses of worship in our community to help house and feed homeless families and assist in getting them on their feet.  Our congregation works with the members of the Southern Pines United Methodist Church for one week, quarterly during the year to provide meals for the families.  Several Beth Shalom members have volunteered and will continue to serve, but more could join.  When future training sessions are announced, we will notify the congregation.
Annual Blood Drive
Sandhills Jewish Congregation are involved with other faith groups in holding an annual Blood Drive for the American Red Cross.

Moore County Literacy Council
Moore County Literacy Council offers free tutoring services to adults with low reading skills.  Students are English speaking and non-English speaking.  In December, Sandhills Jewish Congregation collect books for the Moore County Literacy Council.

C.A.L.L.(Community Assisting Learning Language)
Sandhills Jewish Congregation volunteers, along with volunteers from two area churches will provide English language tutoring to Hispanic adults.  The goal is to prepare Hispanic mothers for success in the workforce, and especially, to enable them to better help their children succeed in school, as well as become responsible adults.
