Times are tough, and our community needs our support. Because of COVID-19, some of our friends, families, and neighbors are dying, sick, and burdened by caring for the sick. Because of the economic conditions, people have lost their jobs and food insecurity, especially among families with young children, has spiked to a level unprecedented in modernity.

Casa Chirilagua is a local community nonprofit that serves the Central American Latinx community in City of Alexandria zip code 22305 – a hot spot for COVID-19. Because of the conditions, demand for Casa Chirilagua’s services has become enormous. As neighbors guided by chesed, a resilient love that insists that we are all in this together, we have a responsibility to step up and help others in need. To honor all fathers this Father’s Day, Beth El will hold a safe, socially- and physically-distant necessities drive in our parking lot for Casa Chirilagua. We will collect the following items:

  • Clorox Bleach
  • Laundry Detergent
  • Ajax
  • Household cleaner/disinfectant
  • Dish Soap
  • Corn Flour
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Dry beans
  • Canned Goods
Volunteers will be ready to pick up your donations in the Beth El parking lot. Please pack your donations in boxes to make for easier and safer transfer. We will be adhering to physical distancing requirements. Masks are encouraged! There will be no lingering in the parking lot, and there will be a single flow of traffic.For those who are unable to shop, we will also accept day-of cash, check, or Venmo donations to benefit Casa Chirilagua’s Relief to Families fund, or you may donate in advance by visiting: http://casachirilagua.org/donate/ .

Please spread the word and share this message with others that are looking for ways to help.

Thanks for your support! Let’s fill the boxes!
