***We have had tremendous response to this year's Mitzvah Day – our 10th annual community-wide day of tikkun olam (repair of the world) as part of a National Day of Service to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The event and all projects are full!
For future Mitzvah projects please look at our Mitzvah Corp descriptions at https://paloaltojcc.org/Family-Programs/Mitzvah-Corps
“Everybody Can Be Great, Because Anybody Can Serve” Martin Luther King, Jr.
“A community is too heavy for anyone to carry alone.” Based on Deuteronomy 1:9
Join hundreds of your neighbors for a community-wide day of "tikkun olam"
(“repair of the world”) as part of a National Day of Service to honor the life
and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This inter-generational event will
feature a range
of hands-on service projects; participants will work in small groups on
projects addressing issues of poverty, hunger, housing and homelessness, aging,
the environment and more.
Come on your own or with your family and friends! We ask that any volunteers
under the age of 15 be accompanied by a parent.
We look forward to working with
you to promote Dr. King’s legacy of tolerance, peace and equality and increase
our community’s commitment to service and justice. This fun and inspirational day
will leave you feeling accomplished and energized!
Would you be willing to act as a project leader?
As the Project Leader, you are
expected to meet once with the Mitzvah Day Coordinator to go over the details of
the chosen project, and manage the project on the day of the event from the set
up to giving directions to volunteers to delivering the outcome. Please let us
know if you can help by contacting Robin Vasilakos at
