Mitzvah Marathon planned
The Chabad House Jewish Student Center will hold its annual, campus-wide Mitzvah Marathon in remembrance of Sept. 11 victims on Monday, Sept. 12.
The event will run from 9:11 a.m.–9:11 p.m. and is designed to present members of the campus community with opportunities to do a good deed in memory of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. A pavilion will be set up near the fountain in front of the library, where participants will be able to contribute to charity, sign up to volunteer in the community, make sandwiches for the homeless and donate food or blood. This year, a special emphasis will be placed on collecting money for hurricane relief efforts.
Participants will fill out a form with their good deed that will be attached to a picture of a Sept. 11 victim. The pictures will be hung along the walkway near the fountain.
The program is co-sponsored by Hillel at Binghamton and the Jewish Heritage Programs. For more information, call Chabad House at 797-0015.
