    All Day

    Join TOV (Tikkun Olam Volunteers) for this rewarding volunteer opportunity:

    Although free and reduced breakfast and lunch programs provide significant nutritional benefits to students during the school day, many disadvantaged children do not have access to regular meals when school is not in session. The BackPack Program helps alleviate child hunger by discreetly providing hungry children with backpacks full of nutritious and easy-to-prepare food on Friday afternoons so they have food to eat throughout the weekend.

    7 volunteer opportunities for NextDor, and 7 volunteer opportunities for TOV.

    Who are Tikkun Olam Volunteers?
    TOV are women from our community who are showing the true meaning of tikkun olam by repairing the world, one project at a time.
