Young children (ages 3-10), along with their parents, stay at Temple for Tzedakah projects for the whole family. Have fun with cooking, painting, creating birthday boxes and a while lot more! Go from project to project based on your child's interests (and attention span!). These projects benefit a wide variety of agencies.
25. Mitzvah Village Support
If you are an adult and would like to work on a variety of projects at Temple instead of just one, sign up for this project and help in the Mitzvah Village Support area. Projects include scooping and measuring beans for Ronald McDonald House and decorating baseball caps for Denver Urban Ministries. There may be other projects that need your help too. This project begins at 10 a.m.

-Canned and non-perishable foods for Jewish Family Service's Weinberg Food Pantry
-New underwear and socks for kids 5-18 years old to support Clothes for Kids
-Toiletries: Full-sized hygiene items: shampoo, conditioner, soap, and deodorant for Jewish Family Service
-Empty large shoe boxes for Jr. Mitzvah Day projects
-Cake mix & icing for Jr. Mitzvah's birthday boxes
-Lightly used or new children's books: preschool through middle school level
We have drop-off bins in each foyer - bring these items leading up to and on Mitzvah Day.
