Good Deeds Day is an annual tradition of good deeds. All over the world, hundreds of thousands choose to volunteer and help others, putting into practice the simple idea that every single person can do something good, be it large or small, to improve the lives of others and positively change the world.
The Raleigh-Cary community has been participating in Good Deeds Day since 2013. JFS plans and coordinates projects for the entire community to take part in. In 2018, over 460 volunteers from the Raleigh-Cary Jewish community participated in 20 projects to better the Triangle community.

Zach’s Toy Chest 4:30-6:00 pm
Chabad of Cary and Sha’arei Israel for CTeen will create “Courage Cards” for Zach’s Toy Chest. This foundation provides children and teens receiving cancer treatments something to pass the time with and make their day a little brighter. Our mission has been to help them focus on fun and play – not cancer, not the hospital. Chabad of Cary and Sha’arei Israel for CTeen will also be spending some of their time dedicated to packing Matzos to be delivered to those in Raleigh who are in need!
This event is open for all teens! Contact Rabbi Zalmy Dubinsky at firstname.lastname@example.org
