Good deeds abound

More than 60 families and staff came together on Sunday, April 2 to participate in a variety of social service projects organized by the Mandell JCC in West Hartford. The reason: Good Deeds Day, a global initiative that unites people from over 75 countries to do, well, good deeds. At the JCC, these “good deeds” included kids baking cookies for local hometown heroes – i.e., firefighters and police – and taking a ‘superhero’ oath to do good; teens, led by Chef Lindsay Perkins, cooked 100 pounds of food for Hands on Hartford, a local organization that helps Hartford’s needy; and adults participated in the Pilates for a Purpose class to help support the 2017 Israel Ride and the Hazon and the Arava Institutes, two organizations working towards peace, environmental sustainability, and regional cooperation.
