Evanston, IL — Students at Beth Emet Synagogue’s Early Childhood Program donated new packages of socks and underwear to ESCCA (Evanston School Children’s Clothing Association) this week. Throughout the year, the students in the G’dolim class (ages 4-5) collected money each week in preparation for Shabbat (Sabbath), and purchased the clothing on a field trip to Kohl’s Department Store in Lincolnwood Town Center, accompanied by their teachers Susan Rose and Beth Shields. The students presented all of the clothing to Diane Kastman and Enid Shapiro, co-Presidents of ESCCA, who visited the class.

“Underwear is meaningful to young children” noted Kathy Kaberon, Director of the Early Childhood Program at Beth Emet, “and so they were proud to offer this to other Evanston children”. Beth Emet The Free Synagogue is located in Evanston, IL. The Early Childhood Program is NAEYC accredited and serves children ages 1-5.
