SYNAGOGUE members are urging shoppers to go on a spree for the young homeless of Herts on Sunday.
Members of St Albans Masosrti Synagogue (SAMS) are joining forces with Sainsbury's in Everard Close, St Albans, for Mitzvah Day to help the Herts Young Homeless Group (HYHG).
The charity finds homes for young adults and the aim is to collect items for everyday home use from a toothbrush to bedding and kitchen cookware.
SAMS members with HYHG staff will be at the entrance to the store from 10am to 4pm handing out special shopping lists asking customers to purchase homeware for the homeless.

As they leave the store, shoppers can drop off their gifts in a special trolley. The goods will then be sorted into packs and presented to the young adults when they are most needed.
Said SAMS committee member Liz Oppedijk: "It's wonderful to be able to help these young people with practical problems that impact on daily life.
