MLK 2019: Canvass to Reduce Hunger in Brooklyn on January 17th

Volunteer with Repair the World and Hunger Free America! Join us in distributing information about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) around Nostrand Ave / Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights.


Nationwide, approximately 33% of people eligible for SNAP benefits do not participate. Volunteers will be canvassing on behalf of Hunger Free America in Central Brooklyn to raise awareness about SNAP benefits available to but underutilized by many NYC residents. Canvassing provides crucial information to local residents on who to contact to receive more information and check their eligibility.


Volunteers will get the chance to meet community members and inform others of the benefits of SNAP. Prior to canvassing, we will meet in the Repair the World Brooklyn workshop to provide an overview of SNAP and its importance to the NYC community. We will then do outreach in the community for an hour and return for reflection.


Accessibility info: We will be handing out flyers in various locations in the neighborhood, which requires moving around and being in the cold for varied periods of time.There can be as much or as little walking as the pariticipants choose.


Volunteers ages 15+ please.

MLK 2019: Advocating for Incarcerated People with the Osborne Association

As part of our MLK week of service, join Repair the World in learning from the Osborne Association about the issues facing families where a parent is incarcerated, and advocating for those parents.  


The Osborne Association works in partnership with individuals, families, and communities to create opportunities for people affected by the criminal justice system to further develop their strengths and lead lives of responsibility and contribution. They design, implement, and advocate for solutions that prevent and reduce the damage caused by crime and incarceration.


The Osborne Association will talk about their work, and then volunteers will call elected officials to ask for incarcerated parents to be relocated to prisons that are closer to their children, and for children and families to have access to buses to visit parents in prison. 


Any ages can come to the event, but it is suggested for people high school and older. The Repair the World workshop has no steps, but is not a fully ADA-compliant space due to a too-small bathroom. All restrooms at the workshop are gender-neutral.

MLK 2019: Cook Dinner at Brooklyn Shelter

Come volunteer with CAMBA’s Respite Bed Program, an opportunity that houses a select group of people who are homeless at various churches and synagogues. As a volunteer, you’ll be serving at these churches and synagogues, making a real impact in the lives of these individuals by cooking dinner, sharing a meal, and/or staying overnight in a smaller, more intimate setting with CAMBA’s clients.


One thing that may be lacking in traditional homeless shelters is intimate and family-atmosphere meals. In the Respite Bed Program, we create a space for both volunteers and guests to have a home cooked meal as well as a clean and secure environment.


This volunteer opportunity will be fun, flexible, and educational. You will have the opportunity to cook with other volunteers, share a meal with a diverse group of people experiencing poverty, and learn about Dr. King’s work on food and housing insecurity. 




Schedule for volunteers:


5:00-8:00pm volunteers will be cooking, baking and setting up for dinner.


8:00 volunteers will engage in conversations during dinner, and then help clean up.


CAMBA is looking for volunteers to stay overnight at the shelter from 9:00pm-5:30am. A training will be included.


Volunteers will start cooking around 5:00pm, set up will start at 7:00pm, and dinner will begin around 8:00pm. 




This will be a reoccurring event, so stay tuned for our next CAMBA cooking and overnights in February! If you’re interested but want more information about this volunteer opportunity, please reach out to Josh at [email protected]


This event is not wheelchair accessible. 


CAMBA takes a comprehensive approach to help individuals, families, and communities thrive, offering integrated programs in Economic Development, Education & Youth Development, Family Support, Health, Housing, and Legal Services.

MLK 2019: Canvas for Tenants Rights with the Met Council on Housing

Volunteer with Repair the World and advocate for tenant’s rights by canvassing with the Metropolitan Council on Housing.


The Metropolitan Council on Housing (also known as the Met Council) is a tenants’ rights membership organization made up of New York City tenants who believe in the motto of “housing for people, not profit.” Formed over 50 years ago, the Met Council fights for a city where everyone has access to safe, decent, affordable housing. They organize tenants to stand up not both for their individual rights and for changes to housing policies.


We will be knocking on doors to speak to tenants about any issues they may be having in their building, and providing resources on tenant’s associations and standing up for their rights. We will also be handing out magnets that let people know their rights to heat in the wintertime. Don’t worry if it’s your first time canvassing – we will do a training before we start!


Accessibility info: We will be walking up stairs. Elevator access in apartment complexes is not guaranteed (oftentimes, elevators are in disrepair, which is part of what we are flighting for). Snacks will be provided.

MLK 2019: Learn about Housing Justice with the Met Council on Housing

Join Repair the the World in learning more about housing justice issues with a talk by the New York City Commission on Human Rights, followed by a workshop led by the Metropolitan Council on Housing.


Dinner will be provided buffet-style, followed by presentations about housing discrimination and tenant’s rights in NYC and about the fight to renew and strengthen the rent laws in the face of gentrification and rent increases. We will also participate in advocacy projects such as signing postcards to send to our representatives.


The NYC Commission on Human Rights is the city agency responsible for enforcing and educating the public on the Human Rights Law, one of the most comprehensive civil rights laws in the country. The Commission works to combat discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations based on race, religion, age, national origin, alienage or citizenship status, gender (including sexual harassment), gender identity, sexual orientation, and more.


The Metropolitan Council on Housing (also known as the Met Council) is a tenants’ rights membership organization made up of New York City tenants who believe in the motto of “housing for people, not profit.” Formed over 50 years ago, the Met Council fights for a city where everyone has access to safe, decent, affordable housing. They organize tenants to stand up not both for their individual rights and for changes to housing policies.


Accessibility info: The Repair the World workshop is not ADA compliant because of the lack of bathroom space but is otherwise wheelchair accessible. The workshop does not have any stairs, however, the floor is a bit uneven at some points. We will be sitting in chairs.


Ages 16+, please. Food

MLK Day of Service with City Year 1/21

From Cityyear.org


As a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy of service to others, City Year considers Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as a day ‘on’, not ‘off’. During the annual national observance, City Year mobilizes its AmeriCorps members and thousands of volunteers for a day of service in communities across the nation.


In coordination with local partners, City Year AmeriCorps members and volunteers engage in service projects that include painting schools, beautifying neighborhoods and parks, serving in soup kitchens, supporting senior citizens, and running educational activities for children.


Because City Year is an education nonprofit, most of our MLK Service Day projects involve helping turn schools into more engaging, educational and vibrant places for students to learn and play. We know that one of Dr. King’s most compelling visions was that of a Beloved Community – a community in which people of different backgrounds recognize that we are all interconnected and that our individual well-being is inextricably linked to the well-being of others. City Year believes serving our communities on Martin Luther King Jr. Day is one of the best ways to honor this vision.

SOAP UP Super Bowl Atlanta

Ahavath Achim’s AAACTS Committee (Action and Awareness to Abolish Child Trafficking for Sex) and The Diocese of Atlanta’s Commission on DMST (Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking) invite you to participate in SOAP UP Atlanta! On January 27, help us label 20,000 soap bars with the national human trafficking 800+ hotline number and distribute them to hotels surrounding Mercedes Benz Stadium where the Super Bowl will be held on Sunday, February 3. Hotels are hot spots for trafficking, the second leading crime in the U.S., and rates will quadruple during large sporting events. Labeled soap bars will be placed in hotel bathrooms, creating the opportunity for victims to seek necessary help.

The SOAP Project (Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution) was founded by author, advocate, and survivor, Theresa Flores. On her worst night, after being auctioned off to nearly two dozen men in a dingy, dirty, inner-city Detroit motel, Theresa recalled the only item that would have reached out to her, a bar of soap. With that in mind, she created SOAP to help reach out to other victims. The Project acts as a hands-on outreach program to fight sex trafficking at large events and within communities. It is specifically focused on educating and increasing awareness in the public on the prevalence of human trafficking, in order to restore trafficked survivors and to prevent teens from being victimized by domestic, minor, sex trafficking. SOAP National travels all over the U.S. to hold outreaches during high-demand events like the Super Bowl, NCAA Final Four, Indy 500 and many more. They partner with local organizations to distribute millions of bars of soap wrapped with a red band that gives the National Human Trafficking Hotline number and educational resources to high-risk motels.

Become part of the solution to ending human trafficking in Atlanta! If you wish to participate, please sign up through the link above. For more information, contact the AAACTS Co-Chairs: Linda Bressler at [email protected]; Margie Eden at margi[email protected]

*AAACTS is an award-winning volunteer service group based at Ahavath Achim Synagogue with a mission of providing Action and Awareness to Abolish Child Trafficking for Sex.
