This past weekend was my last “quiet” weekend before I move up to camp! So I did a lot of rest and relaxation, while enjoying the beautiful weather on Sunday afternoon.
I wanted to share a photo with you from a Sunday morning volunteering event that I participated in. One Sunday each month, the Jewish Relief Agency (JRA) opens up a warehouse in Northeast Philadelphia to volunteers to assist in packaging food for needy Jewish families in the Philadelphia area. Over 700 volunteers turned up to help package the food, including myself, alumn Max Blum, and camper Nolan Gardner. After preparing the boxes, which this month contained Kosher for Passover foods, we set out on a delivery route with 24 boxes loaded in my SUV! There were over 2,400 families that benefitted this month in the Philadelphia area from this one day of community service.
Next fall, I am hoping to organize a Camp Canadensis group to participate in this together, so I hope many of you will join in this fun and worthwhile cause.
Below is a picture of Max Blum and me each holding a box of food.
I will be up at camp Tuesday night and Wednesday before the Passover seders and will try to snap some shots around camp this week as we continue to turn the water on and prepare for camp!
