Event description
Calling all 5th through 8th Graders! Meet new friends and have fun while giving back to your community!

About this Event

We invite 5th-8th graders from across Bergen County to join together for New Jersey's largest Day of Service on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! Projects include: creating " go bags" for children escaping domestic violence and in the foster care system, a collaborative art project that will be donated to public buildings, tying no-sew polar fleece blankets that will be donated to senior citizens and Project Linus, packing hygiene kits to help the homeless, and creating "thank you" bags for active service men and women.

Kosher pizza lunch and a snack is provided and the event is free to attend! If you have any specific food sensitives, please bring food that is safe for you. All students will also be given a certificate acknowledging their community service.

We also invite 10th-12th graders as Teen Leaders! Teen Leaders help the student volunteers complete the projects and foster new friendships. This is a great opportunity to gain leadership experience and earn community service hours. Teen leaders must complete at least 1 training session prior to the Day of Service and are expected to be available on the Day of Service from 9 am until clean-up is complete. Additional community service hours are available for those who are interested in helping us prepare for the big day. If interested, email We.the.ppl.eee@gmail.com
