A Kehila sponsors monthly collections in the “Mitzvah Box.” Each month, we suggest that each Kehila family donate one small item, valued around $10, to help low-income and homeless men, women, and children. Each month is a different collection.
We believe that our small community acting as one can provide significant and tangible support to people in need in our area. These collections also help teach us about community needs, the value of giving, and how small gifts can mean a lot.
Scroll down to find the 2018-2019 Monthly Mitzvah Collection calendar, which gives details so you can plan ahead. You bring your donations to Kehila on any of the Sundays we meet and place it in the Monthly Mitzvah Box.
The 2017-2108 Monthly Mitzvah Collection distributed needed goods through these area charitable organizations:
- Shepherd’s Table
- Interfaith Clothing Center
- A Wider Circle
- Prince George’s County Animal Shelter
- Humane Rescue Alliance of DC
