Women’s Philanthropy of Jewish Federation of St. Louis is hosting a special volunteer opportunity to enhance the holidays for the elderly who feel isolated from the Jewish community. They will be making care packages to be delivered to these individuals for Rosh Hashanah.
In order to accomplish this, Women’s Philanthropy has scheduled two assembly times:
- Monday, August 31, 7:00 pm-8:30 pm, drinks and desserts provided
- Wednesday, September 2, 10:30 am-12:00 pm, drinks and snacks provided
A portion of the bags will benefit the Jewish Family and Children’s Service Chaplaincy Program. Thanks to the Women’s Auxiliary Foundation for Jewish Aged, gift bags created by Women’s Philanthropy will also be given to Congregation B’nai Amoona, Central Reform Congregation and Temple Emanuel to distribute to their elderly members to alleviate feelings of isolation and make them feel more connected to their congregation and the Jewish community.
RSVP by August 28 to Valerie at VBurch@JFedSTL.org or 314-442-3751 with your name, email address, phone and preferred volunteer date(s).
