Hanukkah Holiday Bag Assembly and Delivery

All Regions Times Vary

December 3, 2017 to December 17, 2017

Help seniors, people with disabilities, and families in need feel the joy of Hanukkah!

Each year, caring volunteers gather to assemble and deliver holiday bags filled with festive food and goodies for hundreds of JFCS clients. This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity in which the entire family can participate (unless age-group otherwise noted.)

JFCS is also hosting a Holiday Toy Drive for children affected by the North Bay fires and low-income families! Find out how you can participate here >
