Green Bag Project: Helping Homeless People

Partner Outside Organization: Green Bag Project

Chair: Victor Cohen

Website: www.green-bag-project.org

When: Winter-Spring

Completion Date of Last Project: 4/30/14

Description: We collect clothing, blankets, water and ready-to-eat food for people on skid row. Volunteers organize the donations and put them into green bags. Volunteers can help distribute the bags to the homeless people on skid row.

Family Friendly: Yes, but better for older children and adults with an open mind for interacting with destitute people.

Is It B’nai Mitzvah Project Worthy?: 10-hour minimum commitment – requires advance planning, Event Chair oversight, and Mitzvah Project Coordinator approval.
