Riverdale MLK Day of Service

“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve.”

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Join the entire Riverdale community on Monday, January 21 for a day of service supported by UJA Federation’s “Time For Good”, and coordinated by the Riverdale Y. Volunteers will give back in meaningful ways – serving meals, addressing environmental concerns, grappling with racism, compiling vital items for countless individuals in need, and more.

  • Commission on Human Rights – Where do we go from here? (Engaging Teens on the issue of Racism)
  • Bronx Jewish Community Council (BJCC) – Packaging “Soup in a Jar” and Tu B’Shvat Seder
  • Israeli American Council (IAC) –  Craft bird feeders and grass heads (Addressing environmental concerns)
  • Jews For Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ) – Assemble care baskets
  • Part Of The Solution – Direct food service and clothes distribution
  • Rise Against Hunger – Vacuum packaging of meals for international distribution

Join us in empowering our community through acts of service and creating a diverse day of volunteering. Make time for good!
