Wesley Levine – Stamford JCC Youth Basketball Program
For my Bar Mitzvah project, I have chosen to support the Stamford Jewish Community Center’s youth basketball program. The money raised will be used to provide scholarships for kids in Stamford who would otherwise be unable to afford the program. The facilities and coaching are very high quality, and the program is one of the best in Fairfield County. You can sign up to personally participate or pledge to support a participant.

Jordan Alexander – Darien Book Aid
For my upcoming Bar Mitzvah in May, I will be holding a book drive in association with the Darien Book Aid to collect books for underprivileged children around the world. A box will be in the lobby to drop off the books from April 18 to April 30. Children’s books are most in demand, however, we will accept all kinds. We ask that the books are new or gently used.
Aaron Friedman – Emmet’s Playground
My Bar Mitzvah project is to raise money for Emmet’s playground. Emmet was my first friend when I moved to Stamford and remained one of my closest. He had a rare blood disorder and passed away a year ago. My goal is to help complete Emmet’s Playground by adding at least two of the four picnic tables. I want Emmet’s Playground to be a special place where everyone can have a fun time, just like all of the fun times I had with Emmet. To donate, please go to Emmet’s Playground.
Maya Shapiro – Stamford Hospital Toy Drive
I am Maya Shapiro and I go to Turn of River Middle School. For my mitzvah project, I will be collecting toys for David’s Treasure Chest Toy Closet in the pediatric unit at Stamford Hospital. I chose this because it is important to me to help bring joy to a sick child. The closet serves babies through teenagers and provides them an opportunity to play a game, color a book, or play with a toy. We will be collecting toys through the end of October. Call or text me at (203) 273-8381 for drop-off information.
Toys should be unused and unopened. Toys for toddlers can include trucks, building blocks. Toys for children can include games, Barbie dolls, action figures. Toys for teens can include gift cards to Amazon, iTunes, etc.
