Social Action Volunteer Opportunities
Fantastic Tikkun Olam Opportunity For All
SHIP (Summit Helping Its People)
It might come as a surprise to some that there are people right here in Summit who experience food insecurity. SHIP is an organized group of volunteers who come together to feed our neighbors who are hungry. SHIP provides weekday breakfasts and lunches as well as a weekend fellowship dinner. On the first Sunday of every month CBH partners with SHIP to provide that week’s fellowship dinner. Members of our congregation buy food, cook, set up, serve and clean up. While our SHIP volunteers span all age groups, this is a particularly great way to introduce kids to the idea that Tikkun Olam is not only about putting coins in the tzedakah can, but also about putting in time and effort. Kids of all ages can help shop, prep, or cook and those in 5th grade or above can also help set up, serve, and clean up. We all share in the work so no one has to do it all and you don’t have to sign up every month, only when you are able. So cook with your family or friends and fulfill a mitzvah at the same time! We have easy recipes to prepare for a crowd. And if you don’t cook you can offer to bring the bread! It’s all good. Want to sign up or find out more?
