Moriah Gives Back at Second Annual Day of Kindness

Packing smile kits.

On Sunday, May 19, The Moriah School of Englewood, New Jersey ran its second annual “Day of Kindness” program. The event was organized by teacher and parent volunteers who coordinated with multiple local and Jewish organizations. Moriah parents and their children were able to stop by the school throughout the morning and perform acts of kindness with their fellow Moriah families and give back through various acts of chesed.

There were tables set up where the families could pack supplies for both the Bergen County and Rockland County Bikur Cholim and learn about the services they provide. Families packed snack bags for Kosher Troops and wrote letters to the chayalim in Israel.

The children prepared “summer bags” for Friendship Circle, decorating water bottles and totes and packaging them with bubbles and chalk. Jewish Family and Children’s Services (JFCS) was in attendance and had the children pack “smile” kits with toothbrushes and toothpaste. In addition, the children planted flowers and sent notes to be delivered by Moriah students to the seniors living at the Sentinel of Rockland County. Families were also able to learn about the amazing work done through Sharsheret and how to get more involved.

In addition, the MAP (Moriah Association of Parents) helped the children pack beautiful fruit baskets to be delivered to the maintenance staff as a way to say “thank you.”

Parents generously donated toys for Chai Lifeline, clothing for Yad Leah and food for the local CFA. Two Shomer Shabbos Englewood Girl Scout troops (K-3) led by Moriah moms organized the donations and facilitated the making of bracelets to be sent to students in Israel.

The day was filled with a sense of unity and pride as the families joined together and taught their children about chesed and hakarat hatov.
