Volunteer & Temple Wish List

Volunteer Opportunities coming up:

We often have special events needing support, fund raising efforts, we can always use help in the garden, our building is over 100 years old and so there are always maintenance and repair projects and we keep a running list of future projects and tasks or projects presented at and updated for every board of director meeting and would be happy to provide information on opportunities to help. We greatly appreciate help from anyone with skills in building maintenance and construction, but have many tasks requiring a wide variety of skills. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us!

Donation Wish List for HSZC (objects we could use)

We operate and continue to operate through the generous money donations you provide (dana), but also have needs of physical objects and work effort to keep our space in good shape, clean and inviting to practitioners and those wishing to drop by and explore. 
Currently we could use:
Newer Microwave:  Current one works, but is in its last stages of life.
Insulation (we need to fill the place with it! We have hollow walls and underside exposed floor in the zendo)
Kitchen / Back Porch cabinets
Concrete for patch work
Small storage shed for porch or garden area
– Another water efficient toilet and install for resident students’ floor restroom
