#LetsChalkShabbos on the 3 Train, An Innovative Mivtzoim Campaign

The Mivtzoim Depot, a project of Lubavitch Youth Organization, is organizing a pre-Tishrei Mivtzoim campaign for girls and families of Crown Heights, happening today and tomorrow (Thursday and Friday). Participants choose a stop along the 3 train line, come pick up a kit with stencil, chalk and chalk spray, and head out to their location. There, they are going to leave a chalk message about the Shabbos candle lighting time, and distribute neshek and Tishrei guides to passersby.
