By Alyssa Gorenberg, MHWOW Program Manager

Once again, Moishe House is excited to partner with Sharsheret for Pink and Teal program grants throughout the month of February! Sharsheret is a national non-profit organization committed to supporting women and their families during a breast or ovarian cancer diagnosis. Pink and teal ribbons represent breast cancer and ovarian cancers so we are offering grants who want to put together a Pink or Teal program in honor of either cancer’s awareness. You can apply for a grant here

Don’t know where to start? Sharsheret has got you covered! Their website is full of printable resources like posters and brochures that you can use your grant dollars to print out. If you are a U.S. based host, once your grant is approved Sharsheret will send you conversation starters and giveaways. 

This grant is available for up to $50 and we are hoping you will use it for special decorations, educational materials, and more. Be sure to apply for the grant as well as apply for the program in the Mintranet. While there are several programs you could host with this grant, check out some of our hosts and houses who put together a Shabbat Experience last year!
