MAKE YOUR DAY OFF FROM WORK AND SCHOOL A “DAY ON” FOR TIKKUN OLAM

Date: Monday, January 17, 2022
Time: 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

MAKE YOUR DAY OFF FROM WORK AND SCHOOL A “DAY ON” FOR TIKKUN OLAM.

With in-person and at-home options available this year, don’t miss this unique opportunity to join forces with volunteers in the interfaith community to help those in need.

In-Person Volunteer Opportunities

11:00 am – 1:00 pm at Temple.
Proof of vaccination required for all participants ages 5 and up.

Sandwich Making Make sandwiches—lots of sandwiches—for members of our community battling hunger and food insecurity.

Healthy Grocery Bags If you enjoy our annual Sunday Stuffing — All the Fixin’s project — this one’s for you! Help us gather the items needed for delicious and nutritious soups which will be given to our friends at Nourish Now to distribute throughout the community.

Snack Packs Assemble delicious, healthy trail mix packs that will be given to several area partners working to fight hunger and food insecurity. (Note: this project may contain nuts)

Paint-n-Plant This fun project combines arts and crafts and nature. Decorate flower pots and then plant seeds inside them. These will be donated to Afghan refugees resettling in our area and to seniors living at the Hebrew Home. This project is open to everyone but is perfect for our ECC families and those with young kids who want to lend a helping hand.

WHC Hunger Project Grab an apron, a hairnet, gloves, and a mask and help assemble 10,000 meals for those fighting hunger and food insecurity right here in the DMV. This project is perfect for kids ages 8+ and adults of all ages.  (Please note that separate registration is required for this activity. Please click here to learn more and RSVP.)

Projects You Can Do at Home

These projects can be completed anytime and dropped off during normal business hours to either Temple or JBSC.

Blanket Making Kits As the temperatures continue to drop, we always need help assembling our no-sew blankets. Perfect for kids and adults of all ages, these will be given to Interfaith Works and Iona — who will distribute them into the community to help keep people warm during the winter months.

New & Gently-Used Clothing Drive We’re collecting all types of clothing, suitable for any season, for both kids and adults, that will be donated to our friends at Interfaith Works who distribute the items to low-income families. 

Sleeping Bag Collection Our partner,  Abram Simon Elementary in Southeast DC, needs help collecting new sleeping bags for their 5th-grade students to use on their camping trip in the Spring of 2022.
