MLK Day of Service
Mon, January 21
Ansche Chesed will join thousands of New Yorkers to participate in the annual MLK Day of Service. Get to know other AC members while working together to make a difference in the greater NYC community.
Ansche Chesed will be participating in two service projects:
Assemble Food Packages for Local Food Pantry
Ages 8 and up.
Our group will join other volunteers at JCC Harlem’s food packaging project. We will create shelf-stable food packets in environmentally friendly packaging and utilizing high quality, bulk food. The food packets created will be available at the Community Kitchen & Food Pantry’s supermarket-style pantry for clients to select and then bring home to cook.
Location: JCC Harlem: 318 West 118th Street
Revitalization/Painting in the Bronx
We will volunteer with Habitat for Humanity’s Brush With Kindness program to help revitalize the communal spaces of a low-income housing facility in the Bronx. No expertise is needed – site staff will guide us in the project.
Ages 14 and up.
Location: We will be working in the Bronx. Exact location will be provided by Brush With Kindness closer to the date.
