Federation’s Sara & Samuels J. Lessans Good Deeds Week

April 11, 2021 - April 18, 2021

Join The Jewish Federation and our Greater Washington Jewish community to DO GOOD together April 11-18!

Food insecurity across our community remains a critical issue, especially in the wake of COVID-19. This Good Deeds Week, Federation is proud to unite 60+ community partners in meeting this growing need. Join thousands of community members from across DC, MD, and Northern VA as we fill the shelves of local food pantries, feed those who are hungry, and make a difference all week long.

Follow the community during Good Deeds Week and share your progress using #GoodDeedsWeek!

Help us continue to care for our community year-round. Make a donation to Federation’s human services fund to support struggling individuals and families access emergency cash, mental health support, and food assistance, as well as cover urgent housing costs, medical bills, childcare fees, and more.

Federation’s Good Deeds Week is made possible by Drs. Ellen & Stuart Lessans, in loving memory or Sara & Samuel J. Lessans.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington welcomes the participation of interfaith couples and families, and people of all abilities, backgrounds, gender identities and sexual orientations. Building an inclusive community is a Federation priority.
