Mitzvah in a Minute
April 23rd

Three to four refugee families arrive in Sacramento every week with only suitcases in hand. NCJW volunteers put our mission into action by collecting basic household goods for these families. We donated these items to Opening Doors, a local organization supporting refugees with restarting their lives in our local community. You can volunteer with Opening Doors or donate additional items by going to their website.
