Everything But The Turkey – PJ Library Edition 2017

Edlavitch DCJCC
Sunday, November 19, 2017
10:30 AM — 12:00 PM
1529 16th Street NW
Washington, DC 20036 United States

Reservation Required Kid-friendly Metro-accessible Volunteer Opportunities

This Thanksgiving, show your kids the Jewish value of tikkun olam (repairing the world) by working together to help those facing hunger and homelessness in our community. Join PJ Library® and The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington at the Edlavitch DCJCC’s annual Everything But The Turkey (EBTT).

Come for a morning of making healthy snack bags, creating a gift for families in DC shelters and learning during a story time.  These will connect your children to the Jewish values of gratitude and giving back to those less fortunate. Everything we make will be donated to those in need through DC Central Kitchen.

Pre-registration is required for this program, and we expect it to fill up quickly! We request a $20 per family registration fee to help offset the cost of food and supplies. Please also bring a canned good for every child to make into a fantastic turkey centerpiece. These will also be donated to DC Central Kitchen.

Cost: $20
