Thankful to be of service

Cedar Sinai Park is thankful that we were able to be of service as part of this year’s Jewish Family & Child Service Holiday Campaigns!

JFCS reports that “On Sunday, the holidays were brightened for 62 disadvantaged families who received gift bundles through the JFCS Mitzvah Menorah/Adopt-a-Family Campaign. With the help of our community partners, the many caring individuals and families who “adopted” families in need, our donors, and the amazing volunteers who wrapped and delivered gift bundles, the holiday wishes of these families and individuals came true.”

Cedar Sinai Park was thrilled to help out as a Thanksgiving Food Box Partner, along with Beit Havarim, Congregation Beth Israel, Congregation Neveh Shalom, Congregation Shaarie Torah, Congregation Shir Tikvah, Havurah Shalom Religious School, Maayan Torah Day School, Mittleman Jewish Community Center, Portland Jewish Academy and Albertsons Safeway.

We are also thankful for all of the participants in the Adopt-a-Family campaign, including:  Congregation Beth Israel, Congregation Shaarie Torah, Jewish Boy Scouts Troop 739, Jewish Cub Scout Pack 739, Jewish Federation of Greater Portland, Kol Shalom, Maayan Torah Day School, Mittleman Jewish Community Center, Portland Jewish Academy and the many families and individuals who also “adopted.”

JFCS volunteers

It’s a wrap! Volunteers wrapped hundreds of gifts, readying them for delivery to families.

When the community comes together, great things happen! So true.
