Tikkun Olam Programs


Now through August 10
The first day of school is right around the corner and many children in San Diego will begin the school year without necessary school supplies. Help us make a difference to them and their families. We will be collecting backpacks and school supplies in collaboration with Western Service Workers Association - an organization serving San Diego's working poor. 
You can help by:
  • Bringing backpacks and school supplies to the CBE front desk
  • Volunteering to shop for remaining needed supplies 
  • Assembling backpacks with school supplies at CBE
  • Donating funds here
A complete list of supplies needed, and assembly details are coming soon!
Please contact Dvora Vinick at with any questions.
