RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Congregation Shir Shalom of Westchester and Fairfield Counties’ First Annual Shir Shalom Mitzvah Day was held recently in Ridgefield.

Throughout this day, more than 150 volunteers reached out to help a variety of groups and connected with each other along the way.

Volunteers worked on-site and off-site in Fairfield County and Westchester County on various projects such as collecting food for food pantries, washing and detailing a mini-bus; and baking cookies for clients of the local soup kitchen.

The work benefitted more than a dozen charitable local organizations including: Kids in Crisis, Neighbors Link of Mount Kisco, the Daily Bread Food Pantry of Danbury, the Community Center of Northern Westchester, Women’s Center of Danbury, Family and Children’s Aid, SPHERE of Ridgefield, Ballard Green Residences, Laurel Ridge Nursing Home, Meadow Ridge Nursing Home, SPCA of Westchester, Hope’s Door of Pleasantville, Dorothy Day Hospitality House, The Crayon Initiative and local hospitals’ neonatal units.

Local vendors at the event included Kohl’s, Gossett Brothers’ Nursery of South Salem, Posadas Landscaping, Katonah Nursery and Party Depot of Ridgefield.
