It’s time to think about Hanukkah!
This year JFS will provide Hanukkah gifts to over 350 families and older adults in our community. For many, especially our older adults living alone, these will be the only Hanukkah gifts they receive.
“Adoptions” of families are currently closed, but gift cards and volunteer assistance are still in need!
Over 100 gift cards are still needed for families to choose correct sizes and styles, or shop for groceries for a holiday meal. Gift cards are needed to Target, Walmart, Kohls, TJ Maxx/Marshalls or grocery stores such as Price Chopper, Hen House and HyVee. We suggest increments of $25. Gift cards should be dropped off by Nov. 20 to either JFS office to ensure they are wrapped and delivered with the Hanukkah gifts.
Online donations are easy on our website. Please select Holiday Project in the menu to earmark your donation for Hanukkah gifts.
Gift Drop Off
Drop off for all gifts is November 20, 21, and 22 from 8am – 5pm at the JFS Kansas office at the Jewish Community Center. Gifts should be unwrapped, and the bags labelled with the family i.d. number. Gift receipts are helpful where possible. Tax donation receipts are available at JFS for your gift or gift card donations.
Gift Wrapping and Chiefs Watch Party
Join us for a fun, family-friendly event wrapping gifts and making cards! Sunday, December 3, 11:45 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Social Hall at the JCC. The Chiefs game will be on and gameday snacks served!
