A Magical Mitzvah

Tuesday, December 25, 2018 at 10am to 12pm


Mitzvah Project for the Esperanza Center



For the sixth year in a row, JMM is pleased to partner with JVC to participate in Mitzvah Day. This year we will be working to support the Esperanza Center, a Baltimore-based organization whose mission is to welcome immigrants by offering hope, compassionate services, and the power to improve their lives. We will be working together to create backpacks filled with school supplies (and homemade stress balls!) for their students. Activities are suitable for all ages and no artistic talent is required.


We are looking for donations of the school supplies listed below to help fill the backpacks. If you are unable to attend, dropping off supplies in the weeks leading up is a great way to support the program!
