Chanukah is always a special time for everyone at Chai and was the right time to give something back to our younger clients and their families.
An enthusiastic duo of volunteers got to work boxing up delicious doughnuts which were generously donated by Daniel’s Bakery, Temple Fortune and Chanukah gelt. Each box was accompanied by a copy of ‘The Adventures of Gertie Grizzler… Gertie’s Rumbling Tummy’ – a children’s storybook kindly donated by author and Chai supporter Sue Katz.
Once boxed and wrapped, our volunteer drivers set to work delivering the goodies across North London and Hertfordshire.
One recipient said: “we played dreidel, had the chocolate coins and doughnuts and for just a few minutes, the house was echoing with shouting, excitement and smiles all round. Such a small thing you as a charity did, but such a massive impact. Thank you.”
