The projects of B'nai B'rith International (BBI) promote volunteerism and the Jewish concept of Tikkun Olam — the repair of the world in which we live. Volunteers often receive more satisfaction than those who benefit from the projects.
A Sample of Community Projects
B'nai B'rith supports many community programs in which their members and supporters can participate. These volunteer programs include:
Schlep Sunday (Collections of Clothing and Household Items)
An annual event in Houston, Schlep Sunday is held around the country — with local variations. Volunteers collect items, including blankets, coats, hats, gloves, and other winter clothing, as well as costume jewelry and interview clothing for women in shelters.
Food Drives and Bagel Brigades
Food collections for the needy and delivery of food to the homebound are both BBI projects.
BBI provides community Seders for those who do not have access to their own.
