Join us for our 1st Mitzvah Day!
Sunday July 15th
8am – 3pm

We have four projects throughout Summit County in Breckenridge, Frisco, Dillon and Silverthorne. The plan is for us to all gather in the Hobby Room at the Senior Center in Frisco at 8:00am for coffee/bagels and donuts. Then at 9:00am we will deploy in teams to our respective service projects. This is a great opportunity for those of you with children, so please include them. We will reconvene at the Senior Center at 2:00pm for a debriefing.

Here are the projects we are taking on for Mitzvah Day. They all involve being in the great outdoors.
