Updates from the Mitzvah Corps:
Want to know more about this year’s Mitzvah Day? Take a look at what we accomplished “Side by Side” at Mitzvah Day 2017 by clicking Side by Side at Mitzvah Day 2017.
Mitzvah Day 2017 is Sunday, November 5. After building our community side by side, please let us know your thoughts about this year’s event.
Drop [Off] Your Drawers Drive: Support Clothes To Kids – a local non profit dedicated to helping Pinellas County students dress for success – and “underwrite” underwear. Drop off new children’s underwear in the CBI lobby.
School Supply Drive: Pencils and paper are only the beginning of the needs facing students as start school in the Fall. We are partnering with Gulf Coast JFCS’s school drive to collect backpacks, markers, and everything else students need to be successful in school. Don’t know what kids need these days? Gift cards and checks are always welcome.
Mitzvah Farm Update: The CBI Farm Project is a CBI Mitzvah Corps Project that will ultimately provide food for those in need. The first phase is to build a small demonstration garden in the courtyard. Hydroponic towers will be utilized to grow vegetables. This method requires much less space and maintenance than an in-ground garden. Once this garden has become established, a larger scale farm will be built to grow enough vegetables to supply to those in our community who are in need. The “Mitzvah Farm” Fund has been established to accept your contributions to build the demonstration garden. To donate to this fund, please click here.
CBI’s refugee resettlement supply drive was a success!
