SNAP Mentor turns Mitzva Project (act of human kindness) into Gold!
Owen Wolfson, 13, of Morristown, made SNAP part of his March 2 bar mitzva celebration.
Owen raised more than $200 for SNAP at his school, Pingry in Basking Ridge, from “casual Friday” donations, and then asked his bar mitzva guests to make a donation to SNAP instead of giving him gifts.
Zack Certner, SNAP president reported that the total raised by Owen had reached $11,000.
Asked why he chose SNAP as the beneficiary of his mitzva project, Owen said, “My older brother did something like this for his bar mitzva,” he said. “I love sports, so when I heard Zach talk about SNAP, it seemed like a really good match for me.”
Said Zach: “ I've worked with a lot of kids trying to help them make their mitzva projects more meaningful, and I've hardly ever come across someone like Owen. He’s just amazing.”
