Volunteer! Hanukkah Bag Assembly & Delivery

All Regions Times Vary

November 26, 2018 to December 2, 2018

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.

A mitzvah that parents and children can do together!

Children of all ages enjoy coloring, activities, and games as well as a meaningful opportunity to participate in brightening the holidays for those in need. Whether decorating or stuffing bags at an assembly event, or joining parents in hand delivering gifts to clients in need, there is fun and learning for toddlers to teens.

Join us for this volunteer tradition in which the entire family can participate (unless age-group otherwise noted.)
