Congregation B’nai Jeshurun is a partner with the Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges housed at the Church of the Epiphany.  All year long members volunteer at the Pantry to sort donations and serve its clients.  On Mitzvah Day the project will entail sorting and shelving the donations that have previously been collected at TBJ.

 

The TBJ TIkkun Olam Committee also works with Bridges Outreach of Summit to make sandwiches and create lunch bags which are distributed to those who are homeless.  While families are involved in making the sandwiches and filling the bags, the Mitzvah Day Bridges Run is open only to students over the age of 14.

 

This year’s collections list includes a Baby Gear donation drive.  Items will be cleaned, fixed and donated to needy families in conjunction with Baby Buggy and Stroller Xpress.
