Yom Tov GIFTs24/09/19
This week, charity GIFT, with the help of over fifty young professionals, packed and distributed special Yom Tov packages for over 250 recipient households in time for Rosh Hashanah. One family, overwhelmed on receiving the yom tov packages, explained ‘What you at GIFT do for my family is so incredible - as well as the weekly parcels, this week we’ve received wonderful Yom Tov packages containing such useful foods for the festival as well as chicken vouchers. To know there are people out there who care so much is really heart-warming and without your help we simply wouldn’t be able to afford to make Yom Tov! GIFT has always been there for us! And we are hugely grateful.”
Mia Buckman, Senior Consultant at Michael Page, who attended the food packing session told GIFT - “Tonight’s packing session event was a true success. Everyone got fully involved in it and really understood the difference we were all making. However small our task was it was more than rewarding because every parcel was being delivered to a family really in need of those supplies and I couldn’t be happier to have been part of such a special evening.”
GIFT’s MD Rabbi Sandor Milun commented ‘Our support services provide an important role within the community. The demand for vital weekly food packages and crucial household items, volunteer assistance in family homes and tutoring services in London, Manchester and Jerusalem sadly does not decrease, with the 250th household recently applying for support. We are also appealing to the community for your support at this time. The essential work we do would just not be possible without the generosity of the community.
