Sukkot Mitzvah Opportunity: Lenape Park Clean-Up

Sunday, October 4 – 1:00 PM

Although it seems like so much today is out of our control, we can still take action every day to make positive changes in our environment and community. On Sunday, October 4, celebrate Sukkot with us by participating in our Adopt-a-Park program at Lenape Park (partnering with Union County Parks). This is the perfect volunteer opportunity for all ages and you will also have the chance to spend some time in our pop-up sukkah and shake the Lulav and Etrog.  We will be cleaning up litter and removing invasive plants from young trees. Please wear long sleeves, long pants, work gloves, and boots if you have them. If you would like to borrow rubber boots, please let us know in the RSVP what size you wear and we will loan a pair to you. Work gloves will also be available for those who do not have them.
