May 4th--Mitzvah Day--Just One project:  We ask children to bring an article of new clothing for a child. It doesn't have to be expensive,i.e.new socks,new hair ribbons,a belt or shirt or blouse. With the donation, they can write a card saying hello and signing their name. We will donate these to  a homeless shelter or The Inn, and the kids can feel they are helping other kids their own age and doing a mitzvah as well.
The Book Fairies:  Donate gently used books to this non-profit organization that serves reading outreach programs, Head Start, and special needs programs throughout LI. Books can be for children or adults. Clean up your home and do a mitzvah!
Shriners' Hospital for Children: on Mitzvah Day, we will make cards for sick children and send donations of gently used books, board games, dvds, video games, and anything else to improve the lives of sick children and make them smile. Another opportunity to do a mitzvah!
