    “Everybody Can Be Great, Because Anybody Can Serve” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

    “A community is too heavy for anyone to carry alone.” ~ Based on Deuteronomy 1:9

    We have had tremendous response to this year's Mitzvah Day—our 11th annual community-wide day of tikkun olam (repair of the world) as part of a National Day of Service to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    The event and all projects are full at this time. To be placed on a wait list email [email protected]

    You still have an opportunity to serve by donating to this Year’s MLK Day Drive:

    • Canned food for Second Harvest Food Bank
    • Gift cards for victims of Northern California fires

    Drop your items off at the OFJCC Customer Service Desk.

    We still need a few Project Leaders:

    Would you be willing to act as a Project Leader? As the Project Leader, you are expected to meet once with the Mitzvah Day Coordinator to go over the details of the chosen project, and manage the project on the day of the event from the set up to giving directions to volunteers to delivering the outcome. 

    Please let us know if you can help by contacting Robin Vasilakos at [email protected].

    For more information, contact Robin at [email protected] or (650) 223-8791.


    Join hundreds of your neighbors for a community-wide day of "tikkun olam" ("repair of the world") as part of a National Day of Service to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This intergenerational event will feature a range of hands-on service projects; participants will work in small groups on projects addressing issues of poverty, hunger, housing and homelessness, aging, the environment, and more.

    Come on your own or with your family and friends! We ask that any volunteers under the age of 15 be accompanied by a parent. We look forward to working with you to promote Dr. King's legacy of tolerance, peace, and equality and increase our community's commitment to service and justice.

    This fun and inspirational day will leave you feeling accomplished and energized!




    All Projects are full. Thank you.
