The Dreidel Drive Was a Success
Jewish Family Services extends a heartfelt thank you to everyone who made this year’s Dreidel Drive an overwhelming success. Dreidels and stars were posted on displays throughout Shalom Park and at the Preschool on Sardis.
A big thank you to our partners, too. Almost 300 gifts were collected and distributed. Each year we ask our clients to tell us what they would like for Chanukah. All sorts of requests come in. This year, one family requested bedding and pots and pans to set up a new apartment, while another family requested Legos for their youngest and art supplies – a sketchbook, pens, and charcoal pencils for their teen. One senior asked for a warm blanket. We know we can count on our community to bring a little extra joy to those in our community who might not otherwise be able to celebrate.
