Scarsdale Residents Asked To Help On Day Of Chesed

SCARSDALE, N.Y. – The Jewish Community Center of Mid-Westchester in Scarsdale is hosting a Day of Chesed (kindness), Service and Remembrance in observance of Sept. 11.

From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 9, the JCC will welcome members of the community for one of the largest days of charitable service of the year. A year ago, more than 1,200 people participated in the event in commemoration of the 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

“The response to last year’s event was overwhelming,” Milton Sussman, the acting executive director of the JCC, said in a statement. “We want to continue the spirit of volunteerism that followed the tragic events of September 11 by organizing a day where the community can participate in service projects, good deeds and remembrance.”

Various activities will take place during the event. There will be a Rosh Hashana holiday package program in coordination with the United Jewish Appeal that will aid the Bronx Community Center. A clothing drive will be held by Kid's Kloset, and there will be a “sandwich brigade” and boxed cereal collection to benefit HOPE Community Services, which provides meals to the hungry in New Rochelle.

“In total, 14 local agencies will benefit from the day’s activities,” Sussman said. “We are asking members of the community to come out and donate items for these drives and to participate in other charitable opportunities taking place that day at the JCC
