Life's most persistent and urgent question is, "What are you doing for others?" — Martin Luther King Jr. 

Volunteer! Make your day off from work and school a "day on" for tikkun olam by joining us on Monday, January 15 at 10:00 am at Temple! This is a unique opportunity to join forces with volunteers in the interfaith community to help those in need. Working together, we will build on our foundation of a shared commitment to making the world a better place. We have projects for all ages, including creating family crafts, making tuna noodle casseroles, preparing healthy snack packs, assembling bags of fresh produce, sorting donated clothing, and packaging meals with the WHC Hunger Project.

Prior registration is not required, but signing up in advance will help us plan for this special morning. Registration for this event will open soon.
