Mitzvah Morning 5781: October 4, 2020

This year’s Mitzvah Morning will be a little different than the past and plans are subject to change to follow current best practices for health and safety. We have some familiar projects and an at home option. We are asking you to sign up in advance to assure a safe number of participants and so we can let you know if plans change. 

This Year’s Projects:

  • Gardening at GRuB. Outside and safely distanced. GRuB provides food to the Thurston County Food Bank and other community channels. Registration limited to 12.   Register>>
  • Make “stone soup” with the Chesed Corps at TBH. For anyone who can use some tasty, nutritious TLC--feel free to bring vegetarian ingredients to add to the pot. We will either work outside or spread out in the social hall. Age 13 and up. Registration limited to 6.  Register>>
  • Transport food to the Thurston County Food Bank Warehouse in your vehicle. We may sort food at the Warehouse, depending on conditions. Registration limited to 12 drivers. Register>>
  • At Home Project: Make essentials kits for homeless people. Either you acquire materials yourself or we can provide them for assembly. A volunteer will pick up assembled kits at your house and take them to a homeless shelter. Further instructions will be provided once you fill out the registration form. Register>>
