This year JFS will provide Hanukkah gifts to over 300 families and older adults in our community. For many, especially our older adults living alone, these will be the only gifts they receive.
Adopt a Family
Adopt a family by November 11th by submitting the Google Interest Form or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive a personalized wish list to shop for your family match. Gift cards and cash gifts also are welcome.
Donate Gift Cards
Gift cards are 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 Dec. 5 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.
Gifts should be dropped off December 2nd – 5th 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 when possible. Tax donation receipts are available at JFS for your gift or gift card donations.
Join us for a fun, family-friendly event wrapping gifts and making cards! Thursday, December 12, 5:30- 7:30 p.m. in the Social Hall at the JCC.
Gift cards will be accepted at the wrapping party.
Volunteer drivers are needed on December 18 for home deliveries. Please email email@example.com if you are interested in helping.
