Tikkun Olam: Giving Spirit and BDJ
August 5th-10th
Contact: Albie Cohen

Many of us have many fond and meaningful memories of packing (and delivering) survival kits for the homeless, through our annual partnership with The Giving Spirit. While the pandemic forced The Giving Spirit to suspend much of its operation, they have just invited us to volunteer with them in August (5th-10th), in a setting that will be created with health concerns very much in mind. Volunteers will be packing kits specifically designed for women and girls, who represent the fastest growing and most vulnerable segment of homelessness. There are two shifts per day from August 5th to August 10th, with each shift lasting 2-3 hours, but volunteers are welcome to stay longer. Full details are here. Please take advantage!!!
