Family Mitzvah Week

June 11-14 | 9:45 AM–11:15 AM

Looking for something meaningful to do with your family? Join Mishpacha & Me, Mishpacha NEXT, and Meals on Wheels for Mitzvah Week!

Meals on Wheels needs help delivering shelf-stable food boxes to homebound seniors in preparation for hurricane season. Families can each expect to deliver to three seniors in local neighborhoods. Deliveries will take 30 minutes to 1 hour total.

The meeting point will be at the J and instructions will be given onsite. You will need a GPS to map between delivery locations and the driver should be at least 18 years of age. If you have any questions, please contact Kari Stein 832.408.3532 or kstein@erjcchouston.org. We appreciate your help!

Come at 9:45 AM for kid crafts before you start deliveries. After you complete your deliveries you can cool off with a Day Pass to the Outdoor Pool!
