B’nai B’rith homes seek DVDs, art supplies

B’nai B’rith Strauss Manor requests donations of DVDs/Blu-Rays and art supplies to occupy residents during the coronavirus pandemic. The Gerd and Inge Strauss Manor is a federally assisted multi-family senior housing project with 81 apartments.

“I’ve started a library where residents can check out movies,” says Luz E. Gallego, Strauss Manor service coordinator, who explains that the building’s  group activities have been canceled.

In addition to DVDs, Gallego is seeking donations of coloring books, puzzle books, games, colored pencils, and markers.

Teresa Wachala, service coordinator at B’nai B’rith Covenant House, a similar facility with 119 apartments, also is interested in receiving art supplies, puzzles, and games, as well as newer DVDs.

Strauss Manor is located at 370 N. Pantano Road. Contact Gallego at 722-9963 or straussmanorsc@qwestoffice.net. Covenant House is located at 4414 E. 2nd Street. Contact Wachala at 321-4496 or covenanthousesc@qwestoffice.net.
