Good Deeds Day - Outdoor Volunteer Activities: April 29, 2018

Good Deeds Day (GDD) is an annual celebration of doing good—where all around the world hundreds of thousands of Jews volunteer to help others, putting into practice the simple idea that every single person can do something good. Good Deeds Day celebrates the value and importance of giving back to the community we live in.
