Out of the Mouths of Babes!
"It felt wonderful to help somebody, especially someone who truly needed it. Cause when you're in need for food, health, shelter, and a loving group of friends and family, it really warms not only one heart, but two special, happy hearts and I'm happy to be one of them." - Alice
"Dear JFS, When I bagged the rice, I imagined that I was the family that received the bag. I felt the family's joy to have dinner that night and I felt proud to bag the rice." - Alison
"I think Jewish Family Services is a great charity to donate to. Because for this charity it doesn't take anything fancy shmancy to put a smile on a family's face, and when you know you made someone happy, that happiness spreads to you. When I was packaging the bags of rice to donate to families, I thought to myself, 'Wow, I accomplished something. I put a smile on someone's face,' and that felt amazing to me." - Arielle
"I think that JFS is a cool service. They help people have a life. When I was helping packaging the rice, each grain meant I was helping a family in the JFS and the world, so when I did that it felt very good to my heart. If everybody did it, the world would be perfect!" - Zev
