Holiday Helping: The Holiday Project

HOLIDAY HELPING: See more opportunities to help out for the holidays.

Here’s another way to help on Christmas Day: You can join the Holiday Project on Christmas Day. This is a group of volunteers who will visit four senior citizen facilities in the area and some places where emergency responders will be working.

To join the effort, meet at Beth Sholom Temple at 9 a.m. Volunteers will first make goody baskets, then head out at 10 a.m. to visit.

Sally Cooney Anderson said, “There is no limit to the number of volunteers and people do not even have to RSVP.”
