The CEH Monthly Mitzvah Mission to Feed the Homeless (in association with Central United Methodist Church (CUMC) and A-SPAN) is a social-action activity that resonates strongly with members Andy and Eleanor Lovinger. Although the Etz Hayim commitment is only once a month, they both participate on a weekly basis!
Both Andy and Eleanor were honored by Arlington County for their volunteer hours with a Volunteer Arlington Recognition Award signed by the Arlington County Board Chair. These are given to people who have contributed 100 hours or more in the past 12 months.
Andy says: “It is so important to do everything we can to help our indigent brothers and sisters and try to address the horrible tragedy of homelessness, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to do so in a tiny way. Many thanks for having initiated this outreach with CUMC.”
To participate in this meaningful activity, volunteers should go to Central United Methodist Church (CUMC) at 4201 Fairfax Drive (Arlington, VA) on Thursdays from 5:30-6:30pm, and/or Fridays from 5:30am-11:30am.
