BIC​5​ IS CARING THROUGH ACTION

Our Mission:​  To create a culture of caring, concern, compassion and commitment to social action.

 

To carry out our mission, we are currently: 

Heightening awareness of the hunger problem.

 ❖ Collaborating with the Mitzvah Circle Foundation and Chester County Food Bank.

❖ Providing food, toiletries, eyeglasses, clothing, transportation and/or financial assistance to our adopted families and members of the congregation.

Projects Planned for the Future for Alleviating Hunger
