Spring Mitzvah Day is just around the corner (Sunday, June ; Schmooze & Nosh at 8:30 AM, Kick Off by 9:00 AM, Activities finish by 1:00 PM) and we are in need of food, toiletries, t-shirts, bikes, and clothing. Where do all these donations go? Who do they help? Over the next few weeks, we will provide you with some information about the organizations and the PEOPLE your donations help. Your donations make a huge difference! (Sign up to help at Mitzvah Day here. Download a list of needed items here.)
