A Note from your President, Peggy Nelson

We are excited to be kicking off another year of creating connections and making memories, while offering support to our Temple and our members. We want Women of NVHC to be a place where friends become family. We are a community, a place to feel like you belong. A place to gather and share food, laugh, and talk, and a place to catch you when you need to cry. We can be all these things, and we want you to join us. With all of us, we will make NVHC a thriving, giving, warm and friendly place.

Our membership drive kicks off in August, but we welcome new members throughout the year. Whether you are new to the community or a long-time resident, we’d love for you to join us. Join the Women of NVHC; make deep and lasting connections, and feel the warmth and support of belonging to this great group of Women. We are here to support you! We look forward to welcoming you to our activities soon!

L’Shalom, Peggy Nelson

Social Action/Collection Drives

Women of NVHC’s social action focuses on women and children in the local community. We  organize volunteer days, participate in community walks and other events, and support NVHC’s social action program.

We also have several ongoing collection drives:

  • Gently used winter coats, gloves and (new) hats to support Cornerstones (Collection box is located in the Sanctuary coat closet from November – January).  More information at: Sisterhood Annual Coat Drive
  • Used cell phones for the Jewish Coalition Against Domestic Violence (JCADA)  Donate phones with or without chargers, and place in the “Women Giving Back” box in the Sanctuary coat closet. JCADA will delete the data and reset the phone.  More information at: Cell Phone Collection
  • Knit or Crochet Pieces for Warm up America Warm up America collects pieces to make into blankets for those in need.  (Pieces will be collected from the Women Giving Back collection box in the Sanctuary coat closet.)  More information and instructions at: Warm Up America
