Partner Outside Organization: Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission
Completion Date of Last Project: 12/15/2013
Description: We spread warmth and happiness by collecting and distributing coats to kids in need living in the San Fernando Valley. All second hand coats must be in great condition, and are washed and cleaned before being placed. Volunteers pick up coats from drop-off locations (at local schools, from people who call in donation offers, and at Or Ami), and wash all coats and then sort by age and gender before dropping them off at the distribution location. Volunteer adults (only) may also be present when children try on and select the coat of their choice.
Family Friendly: Yes
Is It B’nai Mitzvah Project Worthy?: 10-hour minimum commitment – requires advance planning, Event Chair oversight, and Mitzvah Project Coordinator approval.
