Hoboken United Synagogue Hosts Annual 'Mitzvah Day,' Volunteers Needed
There's still time to sign up!
The United Synagogue of Hoboken will host its annual day of good deeds on Sunday Sept. 9.
The "Mitzvah Day" offers an opportunity for all Hobokenites to give back and volunteer.
There are multiple service minded events the community can take part in, according to Jake Stuiver, who is one of the organizers of the day.
The event is also supposed to encourage Hobokenites to give back the rest of the year as well.
People interested in participating should sign up as soon as possible, Stuiver said.
Activities this year include work for the Hoboken Shelter and for the Emergency Food Pantry, a visit to senior citizens, a story-time and art project for children, "Coupons for Troops," a nutrition and health activity fair at the Hoboken Housing Authority, a "Bigger and Better" social-action project for teens, a bone-marrow drive, a cemetery clean-up and several other options.
The day will culminate in the synagogue's annual "Welcome Back Barbecue."
