As much fun as it is to receive a gift, especially when you are isolated or in need, it's even more rewarding to get gifts ready for the JFCS Hag Sameach program.  For the past 21 years, Hag Sameach has provided holiday gifts to referred families and individuals.  This year, Chanukah begins on December 17, so preparations are currently underway.  Volunteers are needed to "shop," wrap, and deliver gifts.  Shoppers pick gifts from the Hag Sameach storeroom, based on the recipient's age and gender.  On delivery day, individuals or families bring the gifts to homes.  This is a special opportunity to see the joy on faces as people receive their Hag Sameach packages!  If you can help, please contact Joanne Savitt,jsavitt@jfcsmpls.org, or 952-542-4870 for times.  Space is limited, so sign up today!
