March Mitzvah Morning

March 21, 2021 - 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

We will be gathering at Homes for the Brave to sort and deliver items for homeless military veterans. Our event will start at 10:00 a.m. at the Homes for the Brave facility, located at 655 Park Avenue, Bridgeport. We are asking people to bring healthy breakfast foods such as bagels, yogurt, smoothies, granola bars, breakfast bars, fruit and cereal to donate. Homes for the Brave residents are also in need of additional items such as hand soap, deodorant, shampoo, napkins, toilet paper, bottled water, dish soap, laundry detergent, and toothpaste.

At Mitzvah Morning, we will be sorting these items and the breakfast foods and delivering them to the residents. Volunteers are welcome to drop off items after 10:00 a.m., and all are welcome to stay and help with the sorting as well. Whatever time you can contribute is appreciated. For convenience, people are welcome to drop off items at B’nai Israel the week prior to the event, in the front hall near the main entrance. There will be a box labeled “Homes for the Brave.” Since opening its doors in 2002, Homes for the Brave has provided housing, vocational training, and life skills coaching to help individuals leave homelessness behind. To date, they have worked with nearly 1,200 men and women, most of whom are veterans.
