Every year on UJC Mitzvah Day, over 150 UJC members come together to create small miracles in Hong Kong by volunteering at a variety of worthwhile organizations and charities.

On a Sunday in December, we gather at the JCC for breakfast and a kick-off, and then divide up into teams to volunteer throughout Hong Kong.  There is always a wide variety of volunteering opportunities— over the years Mitzvah Day Partners have included Habitat for Humanity, The Boys’ & Girls’ Club, ImpactHK, China Coast Community, Ark Eden, Hong Kong Dog Rescue, Soap Cycling, Feeding Hong Kong, Sunshine Action, The Red Cross, Lizzie Bee Foundation, Fu Hong Society, Pathfinders, Plastic Free Seas, and Christian Action’s Refugee Centre –- so everyone, from 2 to 82, can take part in some hands-on Tikkun Olam.
