Congregation Beth Israel Volunteers With Habitat for Humanity

Congregation Beth Israel Volunteers With Habitat for Humanity


 

Volunteers from Congregation Beth Israel in Scotch Plains assisted Morris Habitat for Humanity in building a home in Madison on Sunday, May 4. The volunteers installed insulating materials and applied sealant to a three-bedroom, two-bath home in Madison. The house is one of three Habitat houses being built on the property where a paving company once stood.  The house will be occupied by a woman who has a son with special needs and two daughters, all in their twenties.

Congregation Beth Israel partnered with Habitat for Humanity as part of its Mitzvah Day, a day of service within the community for volunteers of all ages. Additional projects included: packing toiletries to be distributed to needy families through Bridges Outreach; holding a bake sale to raise money for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life; creating artwork and painting flower pots for local nursing home residents; sending cards to Israeli soldiers and U.S. Service members; washing cars to raise money for Jewish Family Service’s food pantry in Elizabeth; and cleaning up debris from Brookside Park in Scotch Plains.
