Dollar-A-Day Pushke Campaign

Thank you for your continuing participation in the NHBZ Pushke campaign. You will recall that the program calls for the collection of the Pushkes every three months and our returning the now empty Pushkes back to you to continue the ongoing cycle of daily contributions. The second cycle is now set to conclude Friday, April 16. At that time or a few days before, please drop off your Pushke at the shul office. The contents will be emptied, credited to your account and the now-empty Pushke immediately returned to you for continued future use. Please call in advance (314-991-2100, Ext 2) to schedule drop-off or to arrange for us to pick up the Pushke at your home. Another convenient option is to send in a cheque for the amount saved in the Pushke. 

All those returning Pushkes by Friday, April 16 will have their name entered in a drawing for a $25 Target gift card to be held shortly after the return date.
