Today’s Learning

The topic of today’s learning is Striving for Equity. It was contributed by Paula.

Did you know we have a “Kindness Activist” around the corner from our synagogue? Have you seen the bright and festive yellow house on the corner at 203 S. Fillmore St?

Often there are scarves and clothes hanging on the fence. There are signs in English and Spanish welcoming guests. There is also a wonderful “Little Yellow Free Pantry” that stocks nonperishable foods for anyone who needs it. Susan Thompson-Gaines is our CEH neighbor and The Kindness Activist. She stocks the little free party with donations from the community. She holds a yard sale every year that raises enough money for her to use for random small acts of kindness throughout the year. Stop by to check it out, donate something to the pantry, or take something if you need it. Know that there are a lot of huge issues in our world and huge organizations trying to tackle these problems. But there are also very small and quiet things happening all around us that make a HUGE impact. Check out Kindness Activist Facebook page and blog. See this article about our neighbor from the Washington Post.
