Women’s Philanthropy to assemble High Holidays care packages

Women’s Philanthropy of Jewish Federation of St. Louis is hosting a volunteer opportunity to enhance the holidays for our community members living in care facilities as well as home-bound individuals. Volunteers will make care packages to be delivered to these individuals for Rosh Hashanah.

Women’s Philanthropy has scheduled two assembly times:

Thursday, Sept. 22: 6:30 pm, drinks and desserts provided; children welcome.

Friday, Sept. 23, 10:30 a.m., drinks and snacks provided.

The bags will benefit the Jewish Family and Children’s Service Chaplaincy Program and Meals on Wheels. They will be distributed to elderly members to alleviate feelings of isolation and make them feel more connected to the Jewish community.

Both events will take place at the Jewish Federation of St. Louis building, 12 Millstone Campus Drive. Dietary laws observed. RSVP to Katie Sheldon at [email protected] or 314-442-3751 with your name, email address, phone and preferred volunteer date(s).
