Last Friday for our first mitzvah trip of the year we went Malivai Washington. Malivai Washington is a place that helps kids in Poverty.Kids come there after school and receive a snack, homework help, and tennis lessons. These kids don’t get three meals a day. On Friday we made 175 bags of food to give to kids at Malivai Washington. The 175 bags of food consisted of a juice box, pudding, a snack, crackers, and a fruit snack.
The mitzvah we did was the mitzvah of giving tzedakah. We did this mitzvah by giving food to the children who go to Malivai Washington. We gave them food as an act of kindness, but this also gave them hope. The whole experience made me feel really good inside, because I like doing things to help the community. One day whenever I have a family I want them to have the same good feeling that I have when I help out people in need in the community.
I think the reason we did all of this is because what we did was helping people in need. Those kids deserve to have more than one meal and a snack. We are giving them hope that people do care that they aren’t worthless. The quote ” Poverty is not being without money, but being without hope means exactly what I said before we are giving this kids hope by giving them food. If they get nutrition it can help there brain and they can do better in school.
