April is shaping up to be an exciting month!
On the Jewish holiday front, it’s the month of Passover, which in itself is pretty great. (Family around the table, freedom on everyone’s mind, matzo balls? What more does one need in life?)
Meanwhile, it is also National Volunteer Month – a 30-day celebration of service, social change, and helping others. In honor of the month-long service soiree, the Points of Light Foundation will kick off the 40th annual National Volunteer Week from April 6-12, which engages thousands of volunteers in service projects and special events throughout the week.
Not coincidentally, April is also J-Serve: The International Day of Jewish Youth Service. Each year, Repair the World tracks the great work done by J-Serve’s teen volunteers across the country and around the world, and this year is no exception!
With so much great stuff packed into one month, it can be challenging to keep track of it all. That’s why we’ve got you covered! Think of Repair the World’s blog as your one-stop-shop for all things service. All month long, check back for:
