Tzedek Tuesdays!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! 

For the next few weeks, I'm going to be spotlighting several of the awesome local organizations we will be working with on Mitzvah Day (November 18th!). So this week I'm going to write about Gainesville's Hope Lodge. 

The Hope Lodge is a home away from home for patients undergoing cancer treatment. It is a service provided by the American Cancer Society and strives to provide comfort during hard times for adults, children, and their caregivers- a similar idea to the Ronald McDonald House which we will also be volunteering with. The building was opened in 1986 and was recently renovated in 2008. With generous donations from the community, Hope Lodge is able to provide a fully equipped kitchen, linens, and towels.

They love having volunteers and are very much looking forward to having us come by!
