Lend a Hand this Summer

Hillel of Greater Toronto and The Birthright Israel Alumni Community (BAC) have partnered to bring young Jewish adults a 3-part group volunteer program this summer in a program called Tikkun Olam Toronto.
                           
Participating volunteers will be given the opportunity to gain insight into three community organizations while simultaneously lending a hand for their cause.
           
The environments are intimate and interactive, allowing participants to be experiential, creative and social with others and with each others.

Bowling with Young Terror Victims @6pm
As an agency that raises money and human resources for people who have suffered through terror attacks, One Family Fund is hosting a cosmic bowling night for children and teens from Israel before they make their way north to Camp Timberlane for the summer.  With your help, we can create a carefree evening for these children who have been victimized by terror.  Join us for three hours of bowling, eating and meeting at Playtime Bowl – 33 Samor Road (Dufferin and Lawrence)

Doing Stuff with D.A.N.I. @6pm
Founded in 2005 by a group of parents who have children with special needs, D.A.N.I. (Developing and Nurturing Independence) is a place that creates opportunities for Jewish young adults with physical and/or cognitive challenges.  Let’s spend a few hours cooking, baking and playing games with people at D.A.N.I.’s Place, located in the Bathurst and Sheppard area.

Movie & Munchies @7pm
Have some fun with the Zohan, some popcorn and socializing.  The evening will be hosted by Chai-Tikvah Foundation, an organization that provides support services for psychiatrically disabled adults in Jewish residential settings to enable productive lives.  We will convene in the organization’s group home setting, in which they provide 24-hour support to eight people.
