On Filling the Hungry with Good Things, or, Please Help the Women’s Center

Here are a couple of opportunities to help the Women’s Center materially over the Thanksgiving weekend, and even beyond:

Go shopping!

We are still trying to furnish the kitchen in our new (BIG Reason to be Thankful – WE LOVE IT) blue mugspace.  We can use donations – and we’ve set up wish lists at Bed, Bath and Beyond and at Target so people will know what donations we could really, really use.  For instance, if we have a set of dishes we’ll be able to host small gatherings – meetings, working sessions, discussions – in a more environmentally friendly way, without disposables.  We’ve tried to keep our ambitions and tastes modest.  And we certainly won’t be unhappy if (HINT) a group of well-wishers decides to pool resources to finance some item.

Make something beautiful!

We are enthusiastically accepting donations of hand-crafted items for sale at our upcoming Fall Arts and Crafts Sale (December 7, Winn Center Lobby, 9:00 a.m. on).  Proceeds from the sale will go to the Women’s Center Fund, which keeps the Center and its programs happening.

Of course, if anyone wanted to help us by just giving us money, we would be unlikely to turn it down.  (Check out our sidebar for a link to the Seminary’s online donations page.)

About Ha_Qohelet

Ha_Qohelet is a transliteration of Hebrew definite article plus a feminine participle, all together meaning "the (feminine) one who assembles" or who calls together. Qohelet is the title of one of the books of the Hebrew Scripture, known in English as Ecclesiastes. The Women's Center at LPTS feels the epithet of Qohelet is a fitting one for what we do and are. The Women's Center is, indeed, a caller-together, a caller-to-wisdom, and an assembler -- of people, of ideas, of actions, and ultimately, we hope, of transformations in the world. In this context, Ha_Qohelet is the Director of the Women's Center, and Editor-in-Chief of Wimminwise.
