Hey everyone! For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Pammie Shapiro, your Tzedek chair for the year and I’m super excited to be making my blogging debut on the world-famous UF Hillel blog! I’ve decided to bring back the weekly posts about various social action-y things going on at Hillel and around Gainesville. Shout out to Emily Sasser for being the originator of this great idea.
So this week I want to focus on Project Makeovers. For those of you who haven’t heard of this awesome group, it’s a weekend event once a year to clean and revamp a local elementary school here in Alachua County. This year, Chester Shell Elementary will be getting the makeover and I would love to get a team together to volunteer. For more info about the project, visit their website here: . They also take donations of school supplies, books, etc. Let me know if you’re interested and I’ll sign us up!
A few more shout outs for this blog. Tomorrow night is our first big fundraiser for Relay for Life (which is in just 31 days!!). If you haven’t heard or seen about it on Facebook, you probably live under a rock. So for those of you that do or who just need a reminder, Date Auction is tomorrow night at 7 pm!! There will be schmoozing, drinks, and lots of great people to bid on! Bids start at $5 and everyone should come out to support our team goal of $4000.
And last but not least, how could I write something without mentioning Challah for Hunger?? We’re back this week but with a bit of a twist. I’ll be at Hillel from 4-7 on Thursday prepping the dough then baking. So if you want a delicious fresh out of the oven challah or just want to get more info come on over and say hi!
