Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life drew some 1,000 college students to Los Angeles for a social service program. The “Just for a Day” event, timed to coincide with the United Jewish Communities’ General Assembly, which began Sunday, sent student volunteers to help at social service venues such as Heal the Bay, The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and Midnight Mission, where they were scheduled to help serve and cook food for the needy.
