Our Heartfelt Thanks!

Our Heartfelt Thanks!

The #NorthShore #JewishBoston community came together in the spirit of #TikkunOlam – repairing our world and l’dor v’dor – from generation to generation.

#JewishBostonTeens led 200+ volunteers of all ages and staff during what was an inspiring and beautiful day. Much love ❤️ to everyone for #DoingGood with us and making #JTIBoston & CJP #CommunityActionDay2019 a HUGE success!

Together, in just a few short hours we…

  • Built and painted 6 picnic tables and 12 benches
  • Built and painted 4 sets of cornhole boards
  • Built shelving in the basement
  • Cooked meals for the residents at Plummer and for 75 people at LifeBridge
  • Painted 2 multi-panel murals and the gazebo at Plummer
  • Packed 50 school kits to go to young refugees in Syria
  • Cleaned up and replanted the garden and the front grounds and decorated the welcoming circle at Plummer
  • Made bird feeders, planters, and posters for citizenship classes for local immigrants

In partnership with CJP, BBYO, J-Serve, Epstein Hillel School, JCCNS, The Food ProjectNFTY, and The Michael Steinberg Leadership Development Endowment Fund the day’s work supported Plummer Youth Promise, Lynn Shelter Association, Lifebridge, North Shore Community Development Coalition and JFS of Metrowest.

Many thanks to Pediatric Healthcare Associates, and Larry Levine’s Meats & Deli for your generous support. We’re grateful for donations from Value Store It Allston, MHD Tents, PEAK Events, Atlantic Ambulance, Home Depot, Lowes, Wegmans, and Stop & Shop. #GoodDeedsDay #Salem
