AMBERLEY VILLAGE, OH (FOX19) -

Over 100 volunteers are devoting time to helping the community on Sunday.

The 9th annual community outreach day at synagogue Adath Israel kicked off, helping several local non-profits.

Volunteers were of all ages, with children sorting school supplies into backpacks for students at Santa Maria, in addition to making blankets and pillows for homeless families.

Other work included putting together 250 bag lunches for the Drop Inn Center in Over-the-Rhine, preparing meals for aids patients at Caracole House and residents of Tender Mercies, and even a car wash to raise funds for children with cancer.

SPCA was also in attendance with several pets looking for a good home.

Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation and the Hoxworth Blood Center were both set up at the synagogue, along with a "bouncer room" to help raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Cincinnati.

This was the 9th annual outreach day, and event organizers say it typically draws around 150 volunteers, but is open to anyone looking to help.

Adath Israel Congregation is located at 3201 East Galbraith Road. 

Volunteers can register to participate in specific projects by visiting www.adath-israel.org or calling the synagogue at (513) 793-1800.
