Federation’s Sara & Samuel J. Lessans Good Deeds Day

April 2, 2017
1:00 - 3:00 PM

Be the GOOD you want to see in the world!

Good Deeds Day is an annual, international celebration of Doing Good! Join more than half a million volunteers around the world for this day of service, putting into practice the simple idea that every single person can make a positive impact on the lives of others and change the world. Roll up your sleeves and make an impact through a variety of hands-on volunteer projects.

Businesswoman and philanthropist, Shari Arison conceptualized the idea for Good Deeds Day, and launched in 2007 by Ruach Tova (“Good Spirit” in Hebrew), the leading organization in the field of volunteering in Israel. Good Deeds Day celebrates the value and importance of giving back to the community we live in.
