Jacob's Bar Mitzvah Project to help people who are homeless

Hi, I am Jacob, a current sixth grader at Or Chadash. My Bar Mitzvah date is March 16, 2019.  My Bar Mitzvah project is filling backpacks, and distributing them to people without homes who live on the streets, and to homeless people in shelters. My goal is to get more than 180 backpacks because 180 is a good Jewish number. I know it’s an ambitious goal, but I really want to make a difference in the world. My plan will be to collect everything in the next few months, but distribute it in late Fall or early Winter, so I want to start now.  I will assemble all the backpacks myself and will personally deliver the backpacks (with my family).
