Mitzvah Day looking for a few good mensches

Hoboken Mitzvah Day organizers announce:

The United Synagogue of Hoboken is running its annual Mitzvah Day
community-service project on Sunday, Sept. 9. The event offers an
opportunity to give back to the community and participate in service
projects that people could be inclined to continue to work on
throughout the year.

Members of the synagogue community and the

general public are strongly encouraged to sign up for an activity for
a day of fun, camaraderie and fulfilling work that will have a lasting
impact. Activities this year include work for the Hoboken Shelter and
for the Emergency Food Pantry, a visit to senior citizens, a
story-time and art project for children, "Coupons for Troops," a
nutrition and health activity fair at the Hoboken Housing Authority, a
"Bigger and Better" social-action project for teens, a bone-marrow
drive, a cemetery clean-up and several other options.

People interested in participating should sign up as soon as possible.

A list of projects is at the link here:

The online sign-up form is here:

The day will culminate in the synagogue's annual "Welcome Back Barbecue."
