Hanukkah Recap
We had a wonderful Hanukkah season thanks to all of our volunteers and friends in the community. We received many thank you notes and words of appreciation from Hanukkah gift recipients and we cannot thank our volunteers enough!

For our holiday Golden Lunch Bunch, Cantor Tracy Fishbein and the preschoolers from the Temple brought some Hanukkah cheer to our seniors with a special musical performance! It was such a heartwarming inter-generational treat to see the joy on everyone's faces.

"We just want to say thank you so very much for the wonderful gifts for our children. We are overwhelmed by your generosity during this challenging time in our lives. We know the kids are going to LOVE all of their new toys. This was such a big relief for us - one less thing to worry about, during all the stress. Thank you kindly again - we appreciate it more than you know."

Interactive Balloon Update

Our hot air balloon interactive art project is coming down after a year of being a symbol of rising above the stigma of mental health. We have been blown away by the number of people (over 100!) who have interacted with the art project. Even more impressive is that people interacted in an honest, raw way and expressed their personal life experiences. We are so grateful for everyone who engaged with our entire year long Mental Health Matters campaign.
