Community Service Initiative

In response to requests from our membership,
Hadassah of Greater Baltimore
launched its
Community Service
initiative in 2008.

We offer hands-on volunteer opportunities
that are multi-faceted and multi-generational
on a routine basis.

10-Inch Square Project

The 10 Squares project has been a huge success! Residents of the Atrium and other Hadassah members have been knitting squares for the past few months — already enough to complete and assemble five beautiful afghans. The blankets are being donated to the Women’s Housing Coalition.

This has been such a win-win experience for everyone involved. The volunteers really enjoy making the squares and are so happy that we can help keep needy families warm this winter!” says Cindy Neuman 10 Squares coordinator.

Use up extra yarn and create 10” squares to be turned into blankets to be donated to needy families. Work individually or as a group.  Join our team of volunteer knitters.

Do you crochet? We are especially looking for help assembling the squares into blankets. We also greatly appreciate donations of extra yarn and other supplies.

Are you interested in joining a monthly knitting circle? Several members have expressed interest in forming a monthly group - let us know if you are interested and if you are available during the day or in the evening.

Hadassah Members have recently participated as a group during the CHAI Weatherization Day and packed meals at Moveable Feast.

During 2008-2009, Hadassah Members provided monthly activities and snacks for the residents of the Hackerman-Patz House at Sinai Hospital.

Our community service programs continue. Want to help??? Suggestions??? Please contact the Hadassah Office for more information on upcoming programs, or if you would like to get involved with our community service efforts.
