GIFT thanks those on the front line05/02/21
GIFT volunteers across London and Manchester spent time this month making up packages of gratitude for Hatzola members and the London Ambulance Service.
In total over 400 packages have been made up with gifts, snacks and beautifully written notes to express appreciation. Pupils at Menorah Foundation, Noam Primary School and IJDS have had GIFT education classes focused on gratitude, followed by an activity making up the packages.
Teenage volunteers dropped off the packages to the houses of the dedicated Hatzola Members. JFS Student Jodi Ross who delivered the packages explained 'It was so great to be able to see how touched the Hatzola Crew members were receiving the packages. It felt so good to be a part of something so kind'
The packages for the Ambulance Service were distributed directly to London Ambulance Service who said 'this initiative is so lovely and it has put a real smile on people’s faces.’
