Ridge Street Elementary School second-graders Sammy Samuels (left), Leon Samuels, Zach Capon and Bryce Hudesman swarm a table to wrap change for Mazon, a non-profit focused on hunger and food insecurity. Coin rolling was the most popular activity at this year’s Mitzvah Madness! at Congregation KTI in Port Chester on Sunday, Mar. 24.
Tucked away in the kitchen, Rye Brook resident Rhoda Shapiro (left) and Port Chester resident Helene Simon pour mushroom soup into a bowl for a green bean casserole dish to be delivered to the St. Peter’s Soup Kitchen in Port Chester.
Ridge Street Elementary School kindergartener Jeremy Selzer and his fifth-grade sister Danielle dictate sentiments like “have fun” and “be kind” to their mother, Suzanne. The Rye Brook family is making a page for a Wisdom Book to share advice with KTI Early Childhood Program students about starting school next year.
“Smile Every Day,” Blind Brook Middle School sixth-grader Madilyn Klein writes on a stone at the Kindness Rocks table. The rocks adorned with encouraging messages will be randomly spread throughout the Rye Brook area.
While taking a break from all the good deed doing, Treetop Lane resident Aaron Tegnela, 3, snacks on a bagel with his father Jon’s arm around him.
Hillandale Road resident Rebecca Oling shows off the sweet messages that kids wrote throughout the day, which will be placed in backpacks filled with supplies. Oling organized the Mitzvah Madness! backpack packing project, which will provide foster children with school materials, healthy treats and toys.
