Get Involved: 3 Causes to Support in the Community this Week
The Huntington Woods charity softball game happens tonight, Yad Ezra is seeking help to continue serving the Jewish community in need, and more.
Residents who get involved and make a difference are undoubtably a vital part of what makes a community.
In the Berkley and Huntington Woods area, there are no shortage of opportunities to support causes of all sorts. And, there are all kinds of ways to show support with time, donations and lending your talents.
Here's a look at three upcoming opportunities to get involved in the community:
Help out Yad Ezra
Yad Ezra, the nonprofit organization that helps to provide kosher food and other necessities to those in need in the Jewish community, is driven by volunteers and supporters.
You can get involved to support this local mission in a hands-on way by volunteering your time at the food pantry or through donations. Remember Yad Ezra when grocery shopping or if you have some extra items that could be distributed there.
The organization also has an new easy way people can show their support from right where they are. If you go to the link hipcitydeals.com/s/hcd26 and enter the promo code “HCD26,” HipCityDeals will donate $1 to Yad Ezra.

Root on your team tonight
The Huntington Woods Teen Council and Public Safety Department are teaming up to take on the Huntington Woods Men's Club in a charity softball game tonight.
The game runs 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday on the Burton Baseball fields behind the Recreation Center. In addition to the game, there will be a hot dog roast, moonwalk and a raffle with prizes.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Jeff Braun Youth Sports Foundation. For more information, contact the Huntington Woods Parks & Recreation Department at 248-541-3030.
Keep up that recycling!
As the month of May comes to an end, don’t forget about the ongoing Huntington Woods Recycling Challenge with Hazel Park.
The winning team will have the highest percentage increase over May 2011 and according to the latest reports, it's going to be a close one.
