Women’s Philanthropy of Jewish Federation of St. Louis is hosting a special volunteer opportunity to enhance the holidays for individuals who feel isolated from the Jewish community. They will be making care packages to be delivered to these individuals for Purim. In order to accomplish this, Women’s Philanthropy has scheduled two assembly times- Monday, March 7 at 11:00 am and 6:30 pm.
A portion of the bags will benefit the Jewish Family and Children’s Service (JF&CS) 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.
Register for one or both events by March 4 at WP.JFedSTL.org/PurimPackaging. Drinks and snacks provided; dietary laws observed. Children are welcome! Please bring sample-sized hand lotion which we are collecting to put in the holiday bags at a future packaging. For questions, please contact Valerie at WP@JFedSTL.org or 314-442-3751.
