Good Deeds Day is an international celebration of doing good!
Each year, we spend the day focusing on projects assisting various community organizations, non-profits and religious institutions throughout the city.
This year, we’re taking it to a new level.
Due to the past success of Good Deeds Day within the Jewish community, this year we are partnering with almost 40 different neighborhood associations, religious institutions, and non-profit organizations to have over 800 volunteer spots all across Pittsburgh on April 2nd!
All over the world, millions of people choose to volunteer together 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. Join us for this global day that unites people from over 75 countries to do good deeds for the benefit of others and the planet.
This is a city-wide day of volunteering so bring your friends and family!
Choose from projects in neighborhoods all across Pittsburgh!
Since its launch in 2007, this annual tradition of good has attracted an ever expanding number of participants and four years ago, Pittsburgh was invited to participate. The Jewish Federation Volunteer Center became the central agency organizing the event, with hundreds of community members spending their day volunteering. In 2016, 1.5 million people volunteered in 75 countries worldwide. Organizations and communities can put into practice the simple idea that every person can do something good, be it large or small, to improve the lives of others and positively change the world.
Join us on Sunday, April 2nd to help us spread the spirit of volunteerism throughout Pittsburgh!
