BROOKLINE — Close to 500 students, families, faculty and staff of Maimonides School participated in the organization’s first Yom Chesed on November 10. The community service initiative featured 15 different projects, supporting a wide range of local organizations.

Volunteers made blankets for Rofeh, Hanukkah crafts for Yachad, raised money to combat childhood cancer at Alex’s Lemonade Stands, assembled Shabbat boxes for Jewish Family & Children’s Service, ran a bone marrow donor drive for Gift of Life, cleared weeds with the Brookline Parks Department, made gift baskets for the Brookline Police and Fire Departments, and crafted cards for soldiers associated with the Friends of the IDF program, among other projects.
