Mitzvah Morning 5782: September 19, 2020

The high holidays are coming up soon and with them, Mitzvah Morning. TBH's annual day of service is on Sunday, September 19 this year. We are still figuring out some details as we assess the ever-chaning COVID situation. Here is what is planned so far: 

This Year’s Projects:

  • Gardening at GRuBWith Heather Rudich, TBH Member and GRuB farm manager. Get outside and get a little dirty. GRuB provides food to the Thurston County Food Bank and other community channels.
  • Transport food from TBH to the Thurston County Food Bank Warehouse in your vehicle and sort food at the Warehouse. We are also looking for a few volunteers to pick up from the homes of people who cannot bring their donations to TBH. 

Mitzvah Morning Schedule: Sunday, September 19

          

  9:30 - 10:00 am    Final Food Drive Drop Off (see other times below)
  9:30 am    Havdalah in the Parking Lot/Zoom>>
  10:00 am    Projects Begin

 

All projects are great for all ages. Small children should be accompanied by an adult.
