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.
Good Deeds Day is taking over the world! Since its launch in 2007, this annual tradition of good has grown from 7,000 participants in 2007 in Israel to almost 1 million in 2015. Going global in 2011 with 10 international cities, including many in the USA, Good Deeds Day began uniting people all over 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 2017, over 450 volunteers from the Raleigh-Cary Jewish community participated in 24 projects in 11 location to better the Triangle community. We were pleased to collaborate with volunteers from The Islamic Association of Raleigh in one of the projects. Volunteers packed diapers for The Diaper Bank of NC, collected and sorted clothes for Note In The Pocket, served meals at The New Bern House, groomed horses at Horses For Hope, cleaned up parks and the JCC, and did much more. See you again next year!
