Shaare Emeth plans Mitzvah Day volunteer opportunities

Congregation Shaare Emeth is holding its 14th annual Mitzvah Day on Sunday, May 6.  Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. followed by Mitzvah Day Kick off Ceremony at 9:15 a.m. 

Under a theme of “One Mitzvah Leads to Another,” participants will have the opportunity to volunteer at various agencies in the St. Louis area and at Shaare Emeth. Volunteers will have the opportunity to help cook and serve food, work with children or assist with gardening and planting. Many projects are designed for families with young children who want to be a part of Mitzvah Day.  

Experience is not required for any projects.  After a kick-off ceremony, volunteers will drive themselves to their specific sites (transportation is not provided).  Most projects will finish between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Download a complete list of projects or register for Mitzvah Day online by visiting www.shaare-emeth.org/Mitzvah-Day-2012. Registration ends Friday, April 27.  For questions or more information contact Ronnie Brockman at [email protected], or Sue Picus at [email protected]
