Mitzvah Day was an enormous success!

Mitz Day 15 Photo

We helped plant a community garden, created care bags for the homeless, packed food bags for food pantries, created care packages for our college students, played bingo and sang songs with seniors at assisted living facilities, did buildings and grounds work...and more!  There was something for everyone!  Thank you to our Social Action Chair, Marla Smith and her entire committee for putting together a very memorable day!
