Donate to ensure that there is ample supply during emergencies
Each year the Temple Emanu-El Brotherhood conducts two blood donation drives, one in the Spring and one in the Fall.
Today, less than five percent of the population gives blood, yet nearly 90 percent of our population will need some blood product before reaching age 72. There is no substitute for blood. It cannot be made or manufactured. The only source of providing blood to patients who need it is for caring individuals to give it.

How to Participate
The First Step
Help with Events
Brotherhood is striving to create a series of events that engage, educate, and serve the community. Once you have attended a few meetings, you will most likely hear about an upcoming event that may need help; or have an idea of your own. We are always looking for people who wish to "pray with their feet".
Help with Fundraising Events
Brotherhood funds Mitzvah via fund raisers that create value; rather than simply ask for donations. These events require marketing, coordination, and execution; and we rely on our members to help make these events successful.
Represent Brotherhood in the larger community
Brotherhood doesn't exist in a bubble; we are a part of the larger community, and need ambassadors to help connect us to the community at large, as well as bring in new members.
