SATO activities

  • Refugee Initiative
  • Social Action Movie 4 times a year
  • Save the James- Calling all walkers, boaters and paddlers! Plan now to help James River Advisory Council clean up the river at any of the numerous official cleanup sites along the James. For more than two decades, the James River
    Regional Cleanup has attracted hundreds of volunteers who roam the shorelines on
    foot and cruise the water in boats to clean up trash, an effort that is a tremendous
    benefit to the river, its wildlife, and the people who visit and enjoy the river. Future
    date to be determined.
  • Shoe Ministry Program- Shoe Ministry - The Ministry is composed of area congregations with a goal of distributing 4500 pairs of new shoes to school-age children in need every Labor Day, just in time for school. Temple Beth-El has been asked to collect 300 pairs of new children's shoes (closed-toe shoes; any size) by Labor Day! 
    Please bring your donations to the marked bins at Temple (or to the school on Sunday mornings during the summer). Questions? Email Franklin Wolf 
  • Faith Advocacy Partners program
  • RISC -  Richmonders Involved to Strengthen our Communities: an interracial, interfaith, nonpartisan organization uniting diverse congregations. Together, we build the power of organized people to take direct action for just policies and practices in Richmond, Henrico, and Chesterfield. To find out more about this very
