Mitzvah Day Projects
Read this section and project descriptions below before selecting a project.
Each individual must be registered for a project listed below. In general, you must only sign up for one project. The exceptions are blood donations and projects that happen outside the hours of Mitzvah Day (Project #s 1-4, serving dinner at JFS's Safe Parking, baking cookies before Mitzvah Day) - you may sign up for these in addition to one of the other projects.
Children 6 and younger who wish to help with a few age-appropriate projects must register with a parent for the "Young Kids Floating Project." Their parents must stay with them.
If you want to participate in the blood drive, please register in advance on the Red Cross website: https://www.redcrossblood.org as well as registering for the project below. Search for sponsor code "adatshalom" in the upper right box "Find a Blood Drive."
There will be a few activities that anyone can do when they have time. These include creating cards of support for the homeless, bagging pet food, and decorating sack bags.
