Women IN Philanthropy is getting ready for a day of connecting and giving back to our local community. On Sunday, February 26, hundreds of women will gather together for a light breakfast and program before heading out in groups to participate in mitzvah projects at organizations across the Valley.
The organizations and projects that will take place include:
Jewish Family & Children’s Service – Volunteers will join in unpacking, sorting, date checking, organizing food and other items in their pantry located in central Phoenix.
Arizona Jews for Justice – Volunteers will help make care kits for women experiencing homelessness in Phoenix at their office in the Scottsdale Airpark.
Bureau of Jewish Education – Volunteers will help to rearrange books on shelves in the BJE Jewish Community Library located at the Ina Levine Jewish Community Campus in Scottsdale. The BJE Library is home to thousands of Judaica books (children’s, history, Jewish text, Hebrew, Israel, and more), all managed by our dedicated volunteers. Your help in arranging, and thinning out of older titles will be of great benefit.
Jewish Free Loan – JFL would greatly appreciate assistance handwriting notecards to our clients and other community members they assist. Their staff will provide the messaging and all the necessary supplies. Volunteers would just need to hand-copy or write something similar into the card at their office located at the Ina Levine Jewish Community Campus in Scottsdale.
AZ Kosher Pantry – Volunteers will be packing meals for distribution to those in need at their pantry located in central Phoenix.
