Live with Purpose-December Mitzvah Day Cards

Join JVC and Live With Purpose by adding a personal touch to the Winter Care Packages that are distributed on Mitzvah Day (December 25th.) Volunteers will be decorating and writing supportive messages on cards that will be included in the packages. The cards are often the first thing that the recipient looks at and past recipients have expressed their gratitude for the personal touch.

Who are we helping? The winter care packages will be delivered to clients of community shelters and soup kitchens throughout Baltimore city and county.  In addition to the cards, the winter care packages will also include a hand-knit hat and scarf, food, and toiletries.

Jewish Values in Action:

  • K’vod HaBriyot – Human Dignity
  • Chesed – Loving Kindness

Supplies: Coloring cards supplied by JVC


  1.       Decorate the card with crayons or markers.
