They will be making care packages to be delivered to these individuals for Hanukkah. In order to accomplish this, Women’s Philanthropy has scheduled two assembly times:

Thursday, December 7, 6:30 pm

Both packaging events will take place at Temple Israel in the Board Rom.

The care packages will be delivered clients of the Jewish Family and Children’s Service (JF&CS) Chaplaincy Program and Meals on Wheels throughout our community.
