OPEN TO THE COMMUNITY - ALL AGES WELCOME!

COST OF ADMISSION:
one non-perishable kosher food item per person to benefit the clients of the JFCS Betsy & Peter Fischer Food Pantries

The entire South Jersey Jewish community is coming together to create meaningful projects to benefit others in our community. We will be making 1,000 Chemo Comfort Bags (bags filled with snacks and supplies along with cards you or your children can create) for the benefit of patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper. Community partners will provide those supplies as well as offer a variety of family-friendly crafts benefiting local charitable organizations. There will be a blood drive, free cancer screenings by Cooper physicians, and an opportunity to sign up for the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Registry. No registration is necessary for the event, but pre-registration is required for the blood drive and the cancer screenings. Snacks from our sponsors will be provided. Thank you and we hope to see you at this wonderful event!
