Tuesday, November 28
8:30AM - 6:30PM @ Boonshoft CJCE

Celebrate #GivingTuesday by stopping by the CJCE to roll up your sleeves and participate in some hands on philanthropic activities! We will be making soup to donate to the local soup kitchen, packing care packages for IDF soldiers, decorating cards and bags for our Senior Hanukkah bags, and so much more. Stay for 15 minutes or longer-enjoy coffee and treats in the morning, and grab a cup of soup at the end of the day for dinner! Open to the entire community, and all ages. Come and see what The Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton and its agencies are all about, and how our community gives back.
