We're excited to share our unique menorah this year, which can be found along our Circle Drive. This special menorah has two functions: to spread light throughout the holiday, and to serve as collection bins for a holiday donation drive. Each bin/candle is tied to an item requested by eight partner organizations.

The menorah will be open for donations beginning on Wednesday, December 9. Donations will be accepted through Saturday, December 26. Come by any time to drop your donations, or use the links below to ship directly to our charity partners (where available).
