On Thursday January 19th, fifteen JFS volunteers came to our office in Framingham, to pick up and deliver over 100 “Warm Gifts” for our older adult clients. The warm gifts included gloves, scarves, and throw blankets. Wrapped gifts with handwritten cards came from Board Member Michelle Bearak’s event at her home a few weeks ago along with another event held at Temple Shir Tikva in Wayland. 

Clients have already begun to thank JFS through calls and emails. 

“Thank you for the gift! I am so excited to wear the hat and gloves, it matches perfectly with my coat!”

 “Thank you for the very thoughtful holiday gift! It is so very nice of you, and how useful! In fact, I am about to use the blanket right now.” 

“A beautiful pair of hat and gloves that I really needed since I have no idea where I put my gloves from last year. Thank you so much!”

 Many thanks to everyone who donated, participated, and delivered gifts to support JFS’s work in the community!
