Mitzvah Party is a custom-fit program designed to offer a group of volunteers (friends, student groups, business cohorts) a chance to have a hands-on-experience repairing an area house, group home or community center side-by-side with those being assisted. This program is ideal for individuals looking to host an event for a special occasion (birthday, anniversary, bar/bat mitzvah), a team building exercise, or a group project. Hosts can customize their project's time, day, location, etc. Bar/Bat Mitzvahs are encouraged to use this program as their mitzvah project. Generally we request that our volunteers are 14 years and older, but if you are interested, please contact us.
